A cowboy meets an urban woman who is visiting rural America because she has a deceased uncle who left her a farm. She initially travels to the ranch to inspect it, and make preparations to sell it. While there, she meets Hank – a cowboy who lives nearby — at a town hall meeting.
She is initially driven by money, and is more interested in selling the farm and getting out of town. The town is concerned because they don’t know who will buy it, or what they intend on using it for.
She agrees to hire Hank and seeks his advice and expertise in selling the horses and other livestock on the farm. Hank, a farming cowboy by nature, has a lot of experience in this area.
When he meets her, he challenges her intellectually. Despite his simple, country manner, he’s surprisingly smart, and they begin a friendship. Over time, they develop a deeper friendship, and eventually fall in love. Will his charm and gentlemanly behavior be able to win her – the shrewd city capitalist – over so they can join hands in marriage? Will she commit to spending the rest of her life with him?
