Possible Lives (Las vidas posibles)

Synopsis
Carla and Luciano are a happy couple. One day Luciano takes one of his usual working trips. Following a sudden intuition, Clara decides to go with him at the last moment but cannot. Days go by and Clara does not hear from her husband. She immediately senses that something abnormal has happened because during his trips he is constantly in contact with her. She starts looking for information regarding his whereabouts. Her desperation increases until she decides to travel to the south of Argentina to where he is supposed to have travelled. A perplexing discovery awaits her: she finds Luciano – or someone just like him – leading a different life and married to another woman. From that moment on, Clara will develop a series of strategies to get close to this man, to have him and go back to her previous life.
