Synopsis

Sixty-year-old Ivan Thompson, the “cowboy cupid” who can’t manage his own love life, is a match maker set on finding his eccentric American clients Mexican wives. The documentary follows his travels along the border, as he strives to match three desperate men with three perfect brides by advertising on horseback, on billboards, and in newspapers. His clients include an ex-Marine, a long distance truck driver, and a hopeful seventy-year-old Vietnam veteran. They willingly pay $3,000 for a 600-mile ride into the heart of Mexico in search for true love.
