When his mother sells the ranch where he grew up, John Grady Cole (Matt Damon) heads south of the border with his friend Lacey Rawlins (Henry Thomas). The pair arrives at a hacienda where they are hired to break horses. There, John falls into an ill-fated love affair with Alejandra (Penelope Cruz), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy ranch owner.
