Tells of a brothel in Nevada and husband and wife (played by Joe Pesci and Helen Mirren) who opened the first legal brothel in Nevada - The Mustang Ranch. They become entangled into a dangerous life triangle with boxer Armando Bruza (Sergio Peris-Mencheta).
"Love Ranch" is loosely based on events at the Mustang Ranch. The real brothel was in Storey County, Nevada, eight miles east of Reno. It was owned by Joe Conforte and became the first licensed brothel in 1971. This paved the way for legalization of brothel prostitution in 10 of 17 counties in Nevada. The Mustang Ranch was the largest brotel in Nevada - a massive 166 acres. The Mustang Ranch was eventually forfeited to the federal government in 1999 due to Conforte being convicted of tax fraud and racketeering among other crimes.
