A poignant tale about pushing limits and challenging destiny
Humiliated by his hoofed legs, the flies on his haunches, and the grass in his mouth, a bull named Être tells his tender story about the brutal insignificance of cow life at Gorwell Farm. In a world where the line between disgrace and dignity is drawn by a pasture fence, Être finds himself alone in his awareness and utterly powerless to change his circumstances. Être searches for understanding among the broads, bulls, and calves on the pasture, but finds none. On the best of days, Être listens to the farmer's boy sing lullabies at the fence. He likes those songs and loves the boy. But the grasses thin as the seasons pass, the cows hunger, and Être grows desperate. He is the only cow truly starving.
