Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

A world renowned coffee master is forced to choose between a comfortable future with his devoted fiancée, and an uncertain romance with a woman who makes his heart sing while traveling through Thailand on a major assignment. Tapped by maverick coffee mogul Calvert James (James Brolin) to inspect a crucial crop of Thai coffee beans, Brian Chandler (Kip Pardue) arrives in Bangkok, and meets his contact Ticha (Mamee Nakprasit). On their way back to Ticha's southern Thailand farm, the combative pair sense a spark that is quickly recognized by Ticha's friends Werner (Spencer Garrett) and Mook (Kalorin Nemayothin). Meanwhile, as Brian fights to reconcile his growing attraction to Ticha against his devotion to his fiancée Amanda (Laura Sorenson), Calvert shows up unannounced and cancels the deal. The community in an uproar, Brian is once again caught off guard when Amanda arrives in Thailand to start planning the wedding. Little did Brian realize the decisions made on this one business trip would impact the rest of his life, and as an enraged Ticha disappears into the hills, Brian must decide whether to pursue her and lead a life of passion and adventure, or to accept a life of quiet contentment with his fiancée.
