Boone explores the unsentimental journey of three young goat farmers and the gritty, complex reality of living off the land. This is an experiential film: there are no interviews with farmers or agricultural experts. The goal is the experience; dealing with the realities of a season of farming and the physical and emotional grit born of self-reliance. Filmed over two years, Boone is a sensual homage to the liberation inherent in self-discipline and risk.
