Set in the heart of the breathtaking North Dakota Badlands, Wooly
Boys is a contemporary family film that tells the hilarious
and moving story of two cantankerous sheep ranchers, Stoney and
Facing failing health, Stoney (Peter Fonda) is tricked into traveling
to Minneapolis by his estranged daughter, Kate (Robin Dearden),
in an attempt to get him medical treatment. There, Stoney is reconnected
with his teenage grandson, Charles (Joseph Mazzello), an over-programmed,
over-protected city boy, obsessed with computers and modern technology.
After Stoney is 'imprisoned' in a hospital, his best friend Shuck
(Kris Kristofferson), finds his way to the city in an attempt to
break the old man free and grant him some dignity in his final days.
Feeling that Charles needs to experience life instead of interacting
with computers, Stoney takes the boy along as he and Shuck steal
a hearse, and begin a madcapped journey back to the Badlands. With
the FBI on their tail, Stoney's clock ticks away, as he finally
gets the chance to know his grandson and reconnect with his daughter.
Suddenly plopped into the role of rancher, Charles discovers his
family roots and what it means to be a “wooly boy.” Ultimately a
coming-of-age story for both Stoney and Charles, Wooly Boys
is filled with humor and emotion and is a lesson in love and respect.
A story of life, love and regaining lost childhood, Wooly Boys
will deliver laughs one moment and tears the next.
