Lucy Olivera, a tough-as-rawhide, 38 year old Denver police officer, is about to embark on a life altering saga called marriage. Lucy has vowed never, ever to marry considering her relationships track record but mainy because of the Olivera curse. Not one Olivera has had a successful first marriage. That was before Ruben entered her life and becomes her love buddy.
Determined to get the alter, Lucy calls on Annette, Mercedes and Cristina, her three best friends from childhood. They run not only to Lucy's aid but they away from their own ugly, mixed up realities of life. The girls decide to focus on Lucy and not on their own insurmountable problems. Helping Lucy to get to the altar is not an easy task and calls for desperate measures. But when Lucy bolts from the reception, her friends' problems surface adding humorous chaos to an already chaotic mix.
Cristina remembers an article about a guru, living in New Mexico, who helps people make sense out of senseless lives. What can they possibly do but search for this reclusive la curandera (medicine woman)? Each of the three ladies are hoping that she can work some magic on their lives.
