DVD style


Donkeys are not waterproof and they can’t climb over stiles, which makes them a pretty bad choice of rambling partner for a 1000-mile circumnavigation of Wales. Novice donkey-owner Hannah Engelkamp remains optimistic, but this is largely because she’s never had a pet before and expects the whole endeavour to be romantic and meditative. Young, untrained, headstrong Chico has other ideas.

Follow their journey in this fast-paced, refreshingly unsentimental and laugh-out-loud film by filmmaker Rhys Thwaites-Jones, and discover that being tethered to a donkey can yield a surprising wealth of unsolicited wisdom, along with all the bruised toes.
