Before "When Calls the Heart" became an hour-long series, it was a film until Hallmark Channel decided to make some adjustments in the plot.

The thrilling story focuses on a young teacher, Elizabeth Thatcher, played by Erin Krakow. Her perspective on life changes after realizing that her current location (Coal Valley) doesn't offer her the same lifestyle as the urbanized life that she's used to living.
