LOVE RANCH is a bittersweet love story that turns explosive when the players in a romantic triangle lose control and cross the line. Set in the late–1970s, depicting larger than life personalities living on the edge, LOVE RANCH stars Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci as Grace Bontempo and Charlie Bontempo, the husband and wife team who own and run Nevada’s first legalized brothel. Their lives are suddenly altered when Armando Bruza, a husky, world famous heavy weight boxer from South America, played by hot up–and–coming Spanish actor Sergio Peris–Mencheta, is brought to the Ranch to train as part of Charlie’s ever–expanding entrepreneurial empire. Plans quickly go awry when Bruza comes between Grace and Charlie as an unforeseen love triangle develops that erupts into uncontrollable passion and murder.
