Lambing Season was conceived during research for a feature script director Andrew Baker was writing about a sheep farmer. Originally shooting with the title Retiree in mind, Baker began pursuing the idea of a man - writer/sheep farmer/good sport Don Mitchell - in his golden years, with its attendant baggage and freedoms, but the material drifted toward something deeper and more richly faceted. Lambing Season is finally a film about identity: choosing it, chasing it, losing it, and finding all manner of new ones among mapless backroads.
