Set against the stunning vistas of the Alberta Rocky
Mountains, Heartland is a sprawling family drama that follows
sisters Amy and Lou Fleming and their grandfather, Jack, through the
highs and lows of life on a horse ranch.
At the end of Season Three, dreams and opportunities
pushed everyone in different directions. Amy went on the Ring of
Fire tour, Ty hit the road to see a bit of the world, Lou moved to
Dubai to start a new life with her husband, Peter and Tim chased big
money on the California horse racing circuit.
In Season Four, people drift back to Heartland,
craving the familiarity of home and family only to discover that
everything seems to have changed. After the blush of first love in
Season Three, Ty and Amy’s relationship may blossom and mature, but
only if they face up to a misunderstanding about what happened while
they were apart. Lou is torn between her new life in Dubai and home.
She’s still madly in love with Peter but Dubai is not an easy place
to live and she’s intensely homesick. Tim will return with
substantial winnings and a new love interest. As always, Jack
remains the rock of Heartland, tirelessly keeping the family
together through thick and thin.
Heartland continues to be a sprawling
multi-generational saga about a family getting through life together
in both happy and trying times. The series tells real stories about
real people, people who the audience has grown to love and welcome
into their homes. It takes a realistic, edgy and humorous approach
to its stories with a balance of comedy and drama, adventure and
romance, all against the glorious backdrop and stunning vistas of
the foothills of Alberta.
