Jordan is a busy executive, focused on her work and regularly puts in long hours in order to reach the top of her profession. Despite her success, she feels unfulfilled and is unsure of her future. Meanwhile, Tyler is a single father in Wyoming who runs a horse ranch, trying to raise his young daughter while at the same time struggling to make ends meet.

After months of writing letters and emails, Tyler decides it's time to meet Jordan in person. But when he arrives in San Francisco, he finds itâs hard to connect with her. Jordan is too busy with work and canât seem to make the time for him. However, Tyler stays around patiently and proves to be the perfect gentleman. As time goes by, the two become closer, and Jordan begins to see Tyler in a different light. Moved by his gentle nature and kind heart, Jordan starts to fall for Tyler. However, overshadowing their connection are the traditional barriers of their very different lifestyles. Will Jordan be willing to leave her high-stress job in the city to be with Tyler permanently, or will she decide that their relationship is nothing but a fantasy that cannot work in reality? One of the strengths of this movie is its ability to afford to both characters the chance to struggle with their emotions, fears and doubts about the future, before finally discovering the truth about themselves and their relationship. The exchanges between Jordan and Tyler through their letters and emails are poignant, and their chemistry on screen is palpable. Both Teri Polo and Andrew McCarthy deliver great performances as the two main characters. Another highlight of the movie is the stunning visuals of the Wyoming countryside where Tyler lives.
