The high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys in Western Indian territory takes place in the late 1800s, when the road to true love never runs smoothly.
Two headstrong romantics, Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, find love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road as they strive to make a new life together in a brand-new state.
