    • Synopsis
    • A year after the death of his father in Mexico, Victor returns to Buenos Aires in order to reconquer the life he was forced to abandon.

      Back at his home town, Victor brings with him a new project for his former theater company: a radio-play version of the comedy they have all worked together last, "Love´s Labour´s Lost" by William Shakespeare.

      Five actresses, whom he knows too well, are waiting for him to start the labours: his girlfriend, Paula, who promised to remain faithful to him; his lover, Ana, who doubts about the truth of his love; his ex, Natalia, who believes that she´s still his preferred affection; her friend, Lorena, who dreams of him taking their relationship to a step further up, and Carla, a stranger who after all could be his next true love.

      Abandoning his role as “The Princess of France”, Victor is set now to direct all his strategies to carry out a dual mission: to expose the promises of love and to confront them with their acts. Between theater and radio, the time devoted to working soon becomes a time to labour lost loves.
