Tramaitalian Flag icon

Fabiola e Lucia si odiano da quando si conoscono. Non potrebbero essere più diverse, ma le accomuna un uomo, Paolo, che è stato il marito di Lucia ed è l’attuale marito di Fabiola.

Quando Paolo scompare lasciando in eredità il piccolo Paolino, un bimbo per metà cinese del quale entrambe le donne ignoravano l’esistenza, Lucia e Fabiola, anche se ancora animate dall’antico astio, dovranno necessariamente tentare di mettere da parte le proprie divergenze personali, frequentarsi e trovare il modo di coesistere.

Benché inadeguate al nuovo ruolo di madri, iniziano un viaggio dentro se stesse e finiranno presto per affezionarsi al piccolo, tanto da dovere unire le forze per ottenere l’affido del piccolo Paolo, che ha ormai fatto breccia nei loro cuori.
