OLIVIA RHODES is an ambitious NY-based skincare executive who works for a large corporation but secretly wants to start her own organic, ethically-grown, cruelty-free skincare company. When her boss PIERRE sends her to Bali in search of undiscovered ingredients for a new line of natural skincare products, Olivia is excited about the opportunity, but nervous about traveling alone to an unfamiliar country. Although Olivia is staying at a luxurious five-star hotel with all the comforts of home, the big city girl is a fish-out-of-water while out on her daily excursions with her local guide, FARRELL, who grew up in a remote village in Bali and knows very little about her true mission on this beautiful island.
Despite stark differences in their upbringing and career paths, Olivia and Farrell bond over their shared love for their maternal grandmothers who encouraged them with unconditional love, as well as a mutual admiration for the environment and all living creatures. As their relationship develops, Farrell invites Olivia to meet his family in the village where he was raised.
When Olivia learns they attribute their beautiful skin to a rare plant with healing properties, she eagerly shares the discovery with Pierre. He flies to Bali and offers her a massive promotion – including her own skincare line – if she can help him set up a harvesting operation. Olivia later learns that the harvesting method Pierre wants to employ will disrupt the village’s pristine ecosystem, but if she doesn’t support Pierre’s mission, she will lose her job.
While Olivia struggles with how to say “no” to her boss, Farrell overhears their conversation, assumes she has been lying about her true intent and drops her off at her luxury hotel before she can explain. Alone with her thoughts, Olivia realizes she has fallen in love with Farrell and the kindness of the Balinese people. She quits her job and asks Farrell to join her in a new skincare venture that empowers the local people to harvest their plants sustainably and create income for their village. They share their first kiss as a couple – and business partners – while admiring a gorgeous sunset at Jimbaran Beach.
