Fortunata (Jasmine Trinca) lives a frantic life, with an eight-year-old child and a failed marriage in her past. She is a home-based hair stylist, fighting daily to achieve her dream to open a salon, gain independence and be happy. She has planned every detail and she’s ready to face all obstacles, but she hasn’t considered one aspect: love. For the first time, she finds someone that values and loves her for the woman she is.
