Ivana Cornejo (Julieta Díaz, from Dos Mas Dos) is a successful lawyer. She's been divorced for three years, but shares the office with her lawyer ex-husband. One day, Ivana loses her cell phone. Happily, she gets a call from the person who found it. Happier still, it is from León Godoy (Guillermo Francella), an architect with a very attractive personality: charming, charismatic, and single. Attracted to each other during the chat, they agree to meet so he can return Ivana’s phone. What follows their first meeting is one of the great Argentine screen romances, filled with ups and downs and a growing awareness that there are no shortcomings when it comes to love. An absolutely charming, moving, and amusing love story.
