When life repeats itself, we'll do anything to change our destiny. We'll toil and sacrifice for our families, without asking the cost to our children. To support his family in the Basque Country, Joaquin must herd sheep alone in America. Burning suns and blistering winds have made him a quiet, distant man. When his son joins him herding, years of separation and sacrifice come to a head. Together, they must battle the mountains, isolation, and each other.
The first American-made Basque-language film, Zuretzako is based on the life of filmmaker and Princess Grace Award-Winner Javi Zubizarreta's own grandfather. Starring Zubizarreta's father and brother in the title roles, Zuretzako tells the story of the sacrifices that fathers make and the toll they take on their sons.
