Young event planner Meg (Krista Chyc) is entrusted by perfectionist her boss Diane (Heather Pattengale) to organize a teambuilding retreat for a group of trainee lawyers, to be held at a western town resort somewhere in the mountains - and Meg is over-eager to make this one work as Diane is very quickly to fire people who not live up to her elevated standards. And of course, Meg's journey to the location already ends in utter chaos when her car gets stuck in a ditch, she has no phone service, and Ry (Duff Zayonce), a cowboy - or mountain man, as he prefers to be called - who offers to help her out, tells her it's a few days ride to the ranch. Still, she might arrive just ahead of Diane and the clients, so she might be able to save the day. Still, she's a hopeless city girl not equipped to survive in the country. However, she gradually learns the ropes from Ry and his sidekick Curly (Simon Challenger), and she also gradually falls for Ry and vice versa. But then, through a mere misunderstanding, she's led to believe he doesn't like but only pities her, while he, having been burned by women a few times to often, just leaves for greener pastures, leaving her in Curly's care but pretty much to her own devices. Now this is bad, but it's worth when she finds out the "resort" booked for the lawyer trainee retreat has actually been abandoned some 10 years ago and is gradually falling apart, and both Diane and the clients are only a few hours by car away from the location ...

 

Now of course, the concept of the city girl finding love through her blossoming appreciation for the simple life isn't exactly a new, not even novel one, and in regards to its premise, the film checks all the boxes, for better or worse. Nevertheless, what makes this film score a few notches above other romantic comedies of its ilk is that it tells its story without too much fake sentimentality and that actually puts storytelling over kitsch, with the romance aspects of the plot treated rather subtly, giving them time to grow instead of overwhelming the audience with them. That, in tandem with solid, relatable performances by all involved, make this a pretty decent movie even for those not at all into romantic comedies.
