A Lamb in a Minute (2013)

Original title: Minut ja lammas

Documentary Duration 29:32

Mehis and Raivo are the only professional sheep shearers in Estonia who compare their lifestyle with the construction workers who work abroad. Shearing work often brings them far away from home for a long time. For physics student Aadam sheep shearing is a well-paid job that allows him to focus on his studies while spending considerably little time for working. In the summer of 2013 Mehis, Raivo and Aadam make up their minds to go to Scotland in order to participate in European sheep shearing championships.
