The heart of the movie lies in the story of Arah (Angel Locsin), who goes to the Land Down Under for the sake of her family and her dreams, and Migo (Piolo Pascual), who would go to the ends of the earth to follow her.
Migo returns to Bukidnon’s lush pasture lands and magnificent rolling hills after working in Manila for several years. He is reclaiming the ranch that his family had lost after his father’s death.
At the famous Kaamulan festival of the province, Migo chances upon his first love, Arah, the beautiful and fearless rodeo queen of Bukidnon. He falls in love with her all over again and resolves to win back her heart.
But Arah is already engaged to Brian Sullivan, an Australian rancher. Being the eldest daughter of a poor cowboy, she feels compelled to accept the foreigner’s offer of marriage in order to give her family a better life, no matter how much she still loves Migo.
Arah leaves for a vast and lonely Australian ranch with a group of other Filipino cowboys who have been hired to work there. Arah thinks it's all over between her and her great love, but two years later, Migo arrives in Australia to work as a cowboy and, more importantly, to get Arah back..
Can their love bloom again in the dry landscape of the Outback? Will Migo be able to reclaim the love he has lost or will he learn to let Arah go and start anew? How far will Migo be willing to go for love?
