Filmmaker Andrea Arnold chronicles several years in the life of a dairy cow in England.

This film is an endeavour to consider cows. To move us closer to them. To see both their beauty and the challenge of their lives. Not in a romantic way but in a real way. It’s a film about one dairy cow’s reality and acknowledging her great service to us.

"There's nothing cloying or corny about the way Arnold depicts these beasts. What she gives us is a straightforward slice of a cow's relentless life of muck, milk, breeding and feeding." - Dave Calhoun, Time Out
