A poor rural boy and a rich city girl (or vice versa, same-sex couples included) fall in love. Often, their love is not accepted due to their differing statuses and they must keep it hidden, which results in major angst. In a good ending, the couple overcomes all the obstacles and lives happily ever after. In a downer one, our star-crossed lovers are separated and/or commit suicide to be together in death.
