WRANGLING RUSSIA

WRANGLING RUSSIA

In 2011, Russia's largest meat producer, Miratorg, began recruiting American cowboys to help restart a national beef industry that had been destroyed during the Soviet era. 

Wrangling Russia follows four of these American cowboys as they attempt to train their Russian counterparts and create new lives for themselves and their families in this new unexpected Russian frontier.
