The three women in this story have one problem in common: how to balance their need for affectionate relationships with men with their equally strong desire for some kind of freedom and independence. One of the women is overcome by a trapped feeling when her lover of several years announces that he wants to divorce his wife and marry her instead. Luisa (the main character), is an art teacher, and she is between relationships. The third woman has had one short-term relationship after another, which is equally unsatisfying. She is about ready to settle into a more committed relationship. However, when Luisa meets a new man, though the relationship looks promising, her new boyfriend is afraid to go beyond the level of having occasional dates and spending the night together sporadically.
