Heartland chronicles the turbulent life of gifted horse trainer Amy Fleming as she struggles to balance the social, romantic and emotional pressures of teenage life with her overwhelming responsibilities at Heartland, after a tragic accident claims the life of her mother, Marion. Amy has inherited her mother’s ability to listen to horses and understand what they really need. Amy struggles to deal with her own guilt about her mother’s death while she clings to what Marion taught her. Especially when she discovers there’s a dark secret hidden behind the pastoral façade – the farm is bankrupt. Will her sister Lou give up everything she’s worked for to come home and bail them out?
Heartland reveals long-held secrets and shocking betrayals. Old rivalries and new rules. High-minded ideals and the stark realities of the bottom line. It’s in this world that Amy must find the strength and courage to continue Heartland’s legacy.
