A young cowboy, an aspiring artist, and a rich man form an unlikely friendship. None wanted anything more than acceptance from the others... but sometimes acceptance comes with strings attached.
Flemming DuBois, a bilionaire businessman from the East Coast who has everything but happiness, sees a gallery painting in San Francisco. He vows to meet the artist who can bring such a feeling of peace to the viewer, a feeling he himself has not felt in a long time. On a personal trek to understand where his life has gone off track, he travels to rural New Mexico to meet Jake--the artist--and by association, Ricky, a young, hard-working ranch manager and his wife. Flemming's time in the world of high finance and business has not prepared him for the humble, hardworking ranch couple. With regret he realizes that in spite of all his wealth, he doesn't have what Ricky and Jessie have--love for each other, love for life, and friends that care not for the size of one's bank account, but for the size of one's heart.
