While you're pondering my virtues, I'm going to the ladies room..."
Roberto works in a bar and meets multitudes of women, but nothing can prepare him for Cat. Drunk, desperate and on a failed date, he takes her number through pity and sleeps with her out of lust. A week later he meets Cleo: confident, indifferent, independent - everything Roberto desires. The only problem is Cat and Cleo look, sound... and smell... the same, yet assure him they're different people. As Roberto juggles two passionate affairs with what may be the same woman, he's about to learn that the game has changed for good - a game that someone has to lose.
