Emily and Daniel, a happily married couple, are attempting to live a simpler life and live it to the fullest at their small farm in rural middle Tennessee. The two become separated when Daniel, while on a trail ride with his best friend, Jimbo, accidentally discovers a gateway, which sends him two hundred years back in time.

Will Emily discover what has become of her husband? Or are they both destined to live separate lives, never to see one another for eternity?
