Based on actual events, FREE RANGE is the story of a cow who crosses the border from Israel to Lebanon and meets with 16 year old Malakeh and her family. A Lebanese Spaghetti-Western that talks about borders and power between people, religions, cows and UN interventions. Director's Statement: "When the Israeli cow surprises the family with an unexpected visit, the family has no choice but to milk the cow, regardless of where it was from. This means however, that they have committed an unforgivable act of disobedience to their local authority and ultimately there will be a price to pay for their indiscretion. In Southern Lebanon, the difference is huge between a cow and an Israeli cow, especially to the authorities on both sides of the border." (Director Bass Bréche)
