Oil tycoon David McGregor, owner of the largest estate in a region of Alberta (Canada), decides it's time to get back the original plot and house of Rivercross, the only part his dad left not to him but to his beloved foreman Max Henry. Thereto David intends to call the loan he gave Max's daughter Maggie Henry. She's behind, but her daughters Lucy -who had joined Jones' band, about to tour internationally- and Kate may chip in to try avoiding losing the family heritage. Meanwhile David's son Will, a brilliant corporate lawyer, finds his irresponsible brother Peter lost Will's Porsche in a poker game. David's daughter Rebecca is engaged to Trevor Faulkner, heir of an even richer family, but has an affair with a ranch-hand.
