Marta, a girl who is as nice as she is ugly, has suffered from a rare genetic disease since birth. Despite everything, Marta is the most cheerful girl you have ever met. She has an overwhelming personality and is in a hurry to do everything right away. She is 19 and, like every girl her age, she dreams of true love, but she is not easily satisfied, and before her disease degenerates she wants to hear “I love you” from a handsome boy… the most handsome of all. Her friends and housemates Jacopo and Federica are her family and they always do everything they can to dissuade her from aiming too high. Then, at a party, Marta sees Arturo, a handsome, self-confident guy who is completely out of her league. In other words: the perfect prey. As her loyal friends prepare to help her handle yet another disappointment, she feels that this time things will be different, although she has to deal with Beatrice, a fearsome rival who tries to disrupt her love plan.
