Fabulous Cow Ladies


Three cows – Joy, Crumb and Sweetie – live in the forest. Joy is the grandma and Crumb is its child. Sweetie is Joy’s granddaughter who was born as a surprise on the pasture. Three women take care of the cows, and the cows of the women as well. Fabulous Cow Ladies is an immersion in nature, a film about the cycle of life and importance of community. The matriarchal gang of the three veterinarians and their cows is called FCL – Fabulous Cow Ladies.
