Very frustrated with his lifestyle, he lives with all the necessary pseudo comforts in the house of his dreams, but feels like the biggest loser in the world since his last entrepreneurship failed once again. He has no other occupation but to take care of his son and his wife’s dog. One day he meets Monica, an ex-fan of the music group, who moves into the house in front of them, and encourages him to resume his artistic career. Their lives will never be the same, or will they?
