When Calls the Heart is a heartwarming romantic drama set in the early 1900s, in the small town of Coal Valley. The movie follows the journey of Elizabeth Thatcher (Maggie Grace), a high-spirited and determined young teacher who leaves her comfortable life in the city to take up a teaching position in the Canadian frontier town of Coal Valley. There, she is tasked with the challenge of teaching a group of rowdy schoolchildren who have been left without a teacher after a mining disaster takes the life of most of the town's male population.

At first, Elizabeth struggles to adapt to the new town and its harsh conditions, but she soon finds herself drawn to Coal Valley and its hardworking, resilient inhabitants. As she begins to connect with the community, Elizabeth also finds herself drawn to the town's handsome and rugged Mountie, Jack Thornton (Stephen Amell). Despite their initial differences, the two soon discover they share a deep connection, and a slow-burning romance begins to blossom.

However, as Elizabeth settles into her new life, she discovers that the town is still grieving after the loss of their men in the mining accident, and that tensions are high between the miners and the management. She also learns of a powerful businessman, Henry Gowen (played by Martin Cummins), who has a hidden agenda for the town and may be behind some of the recent troubles. As Elizabeth works to navigate these challenges and bring hope back to Coal Valley, she must also confront the possibility of losing Jack, who is set to be transferred to a new posting.

The movie also features several charming supporting characters, including Abigail Stanton (Lori Loughlin), the spunky owner of the town's cafe; Cody (Carter Ryan), a mischievous and lovable young boy; and Rosemary (Poppy Drayton), a vivacious actress who arrives in town and immediately makes a splash.

Throughout the film, the stunning natural beauty of the Canadian wilderness serves as a picturesque backdrop to the story's unfolding drama.
