Catherine Mornelli, a veterinarian who’s occasional stray, injured, needy animal, has grown into Four Hooves and Paws Rescue. The four horses she rescued are located in South-central Minnesota and where she keeps them is for sale. A need to relocate is immanent and she calls her Great-Aunt Elaine to inquire about the possible use of her barn. Making plans to visit over the weekend means seeing her ex-boyfriend.

Josef Garrison farms land that has been passed down through the family generations in Northeastern Minnesota, and he wants the land Elaine owns. His great-grandfather lost the land in a poker bet to Catherine's great-grand-father.
