The film follows the stories of three women, that represent three forms of love. Simona (Tatiana Dyková) rebuilds her life after her divorce and her son's decision to live with her father. Natália (Petra Hřebíčková) finds love in the form of a widower with a small daughter and a devoted grandma. Eva (Eliška Balzerová) also finds out in her retirement age that her life still includes a partner love, not just the love of her granddaughter.
