Love is intangible, especially family love is the most complex. Family is an essential part of our lives but it can take time to recognize that. Teenagers tend to have conflict with their parents over their independence. They fight and ignore their parents and sometimes run away from home, but they often regret what they have done afterwards. The director would like people to watch this film with their family and think about their relationships.



A 'poor little rich girl' story about a teenage girl from Beverly Hills, living in a small world in a big city. One day Natalie has a fight with her parents over her lack of progress at school, and she runs away to her family’s holiday home in the countryside. Natalie meets a cowboy family and starts spending time with them. Through tending all the animals on the family’s ranch she gradually begins to see her life from a different perspective and her personal values change as she realizes how important family love is.
