Sinopsis: Three women who look exactly the same, and apparently are the same, talk with each other. In the middle, an astrologist predicts the energy disposal from the cosmos. On the left, a woman suffers the loss of the love of her life, and on the right, a third woman celebrates that she has broken up with the love of her life after realizing that she was completely unhappy.
