Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This Canadian made-for-TV film stars Wendy Crewson as a Toronto woman who inherits the family ranch in Alberta. Ignoring the pleas of her mother (Malan Gilsenan) to sell the rundown place, Wendy opts for the life of a rancher. She soon finds herself over her head financially, and turns to an old friend, Alex (Paul Gross), to help her manage her land holdings. Alex proposes to Wendy for business reasons, thus launching a rocky relationship that ends inevitably in genuine love. Originally telecast over the CBC Network in 1990, Getting Married in Buffalo Jump was released directly to video in the States, where its title was pared down to Buffalo Jump.
