Award-winning filmmaker Linda Ohama captures the essence of the prairies in Neighbours, Wild Horses & Cowboys. She revisits her home community in Southern Alberta to uncover intertwining stories of friendship, appreciation for nature, and neighbourliness. Her exploration into rural society features a remarkable man who embodies the spirit of country life. Merritt is a cowboy, friend, neighbour, and, at times philosopher who is firmly planted on the prairies. His love for the people, wildlife, and landscape of his community has allowed him to find a unique balance in life. As Ohama uncovers the people and places that are close to her heart, she draws viewers into an extraordinary world that only exists in the country. Spectacular footage of some of the last wild horses to roam free provides a stunning and symbolic backdrop for a moving celebration of prairie life.
