The series begins with the mysterious suicide of Alicia Oviedo, neighbor of the neighborhood Manzanares that serves as narrator of the series. Alicia's suicide leaves behind an enigma that involves her husband Pablo and their son, Rene. The story unfolds through the four friends and neighbors of Alicia. Each one has its own argument that is linked to the term "desperate housewife": the single mother of a teenage girl named Susana Martini, always crowded by bad luck; Vera Sherer, perfect housewife who tries to deal with her two rebellious children while fighting for her decadent marriage; The female worker Lía Salgari, former successful executive turned into supermama of four incorrigible little ones; And the beautiful Gabriela Solis, a former model married to a millionaire entrepreneur, who apparently lacks nothing, but who continues to search for something that fills her inner emptiness. And that something is, her young gardener.
