Ernesto's a sad sack, living with Lea at his parents', about to lose a job he got through his best friend, Alberto. Ernesto is also hopelessly in love with Alberto's fiancée, Susana - who, for her part, has gotten Lea a job as the sign-language interpreter on a local TV news show Susana anchors, a job Lea is about to lose. The truths that come out during the game, especially Ernesto's desire for Susana, create havoc. Alberto and Susana's wedding and Ernesto's new test results are coming soon. What to do?

Ernesto is not happy with his life, he and his girlfriend Lea live in the shadow of their rich friends, Susana and Alberto. But when Ernesto, due to a medical mistake, thinks that he has cancer and is going to die in 3 months, all changes, lies are forbidden and the most cruel truth will appear in their lives. A good script for a well built story. Only 6 actors for something that could perfectly be a theatre drama. The character and the personality of the characters is depth and structured, and the film takes its time (no more than the essential) to describe how are they, their likes and their fears. The actors are not bad, but I think that they are not as good as they could be (all are good actors), only Jaenada plays a really good part, and that splits the result. This is a drama about how can change our living a little excess of faithfully, the fact that we live in a world of lies and half-truth. It is not totally well done, but the result is decent.
