Revolves around three sisters. Virginal twenty-seven-year-old Afrodita (Labina Mitevska) has been unable to speak ever since her mother left and her father promptly passed away. Her twin sister Safo (Nikolina Kujaca) is an ambitious handball player who loves men and tries to get her hands on as many as possible; her conquests don't necessarily bring joy to her life, however. Finally, the beautiful Slavica (Ana Kostovska) is a thirty-five-year-old recovering drug addict who contributes just as much to the household as her sisters do. The twins are on the lookout for a husband for Slavica so that they can have a breadwinner in the family, and Safo is trying to immigrate to Greece. But breaking from the past proves difficult not only for Slavica, who is seen as damaged goods, but for all of them.
