Amanda Lozano (Mariana Treviño), is a woman who makes a living as a therapist specializing in helping women end destructive relationships. She is a successful and empowered woman, but she discovers that her sister Natalia (Camila Sodi) is in love with a lazy and macho idiot named René (Sebastián Zurita), who repeatedly cheats on her. To separate her from him, she plans a strategy to get her sister to fall in love with her best friend Leo (Christopher von Uckermann). What he doesn't know is that in the middle of this mission he will have to face his greatest fear of all: love.
