    • Mireia (35) is a “professional” shoplifter, specialized in stealing expensive fashion accessories, who gets out of jail. She first visits her friend Cecilia (35) to have a haircut and she gets offered a position at the hair salon. However she wants to go on with her stealing, together with her boyfriend Pablo (38). But Pablo has changed, he now has an aparently légal job and does not desire her anymore.
      Mireia decides to steal anyway. In her first attempt, a sales clerk catches her, but she soon realizes that she has been confused with another one: Eugenia. Intrigued by this woman who must look like her, Mireia makes some research, finds the woman, and start to spy on her. Eugenia (35) is a successful executive, has a big house, a lovely son, an attractive husband and also a lover : Esteban (25), with whom she finally goes, abandoning her family.
      Mireia starts the swindle associated with Pablo, but Eugenia belongs to a powerful family which no one dares to cheat. Mireia breakes with Pablo and changes plans to stealing Eugenia’s family.
      Cristian (65), Eugenia’s husband, strangely receives her with gallantry and cordiality, starting a romance, on which Pablo also wants to take advantage. Everything falls apart when Eugenia comes back, returning as if nothing had happened, revealing the cynicism of this bourgeois family and leaving Mireia without a life to return to.
