Summary

In a small, centric neighbourhood of the city, there are five woman who buy flowers. At first, none does it for herself: one buys them for her secret love, the other for her office, a third to paint them, and yet another for her clients, and the last.... for a dead person. The last is me and this is my story.

After the loss of her partner, Marina realizes that she is totally lost: she had been in the driver’s seat for way too long. Trying to begin from scratch, she accepts a temporary position in a curious flower shop by the name of “The Angel’s Garden”. There, she will meet other women very different from each other, but who, like herself, are at a vital cross-roads in terms of work, lovers, their longings or families. Of the relationship among themselves and Olivia, the eccentric and wise owner of the place, a deep friendship ensues, which will mark the new course their lives will take.
