In America there are Cowboys. In Italy there are “Butteri”. In the woods of Maremma, in Tuscany, the Butteri are among the last people who are still having the livestock in a ranch. These wise heroes devote their lives to their farm and they keep alive a tradition that is near to disappear. Through enchanted landscapes, where it almost seems the time has stopped, the film unravels the mysteries of a unique profession that takes commitments and passion. But the film is not just that: through an exciting journey along the seasons, Gli ultimi butteri is the tale of an amazing time somewhere in the past that is still able to share a deep love for their land and their culture.
