Sergio, 40, realises that he must do all in his power to be happy. An accident makes him take stock of his life and he realises that he no longer loves his wife, and the feeling is mutual. He is deeply dissatisfied with life, his job - he is an architect - his wonderful house, son, wealth and friends. Sergio decides to leave everything. Several conversations with one of his employees make Sergio realise the importance of simplicity. Sergio meets the woman he is convinced is the love of his life, but she too leaves him. All that is left to him is to gradually return to his old life. And hang onto the hope of one day finding true happiness.
