Julian Suarez is a charismatic 29-year-old who is simultaneously dating three women. He is an avid salsa dancer and meets most of his women through the NYC salsa scene. On a night out to his usual salsa spot, Julian meets Genny, a vivacious 18-year-old who immediately becomes enamored with Julian. Genny sets her sights on having a serious relationship with the very casual Julian. Julian and Ingrid are best friends and lovers. As Ingrid nears the age of 40, she feels her biological clock alarm go off and proposes to Julian that they have a child together. On another night out Julian meets Maria, the one! What happens when the ultimate player starts to fall in love?!
