A woman's dilemma

 This is a story on the struggles of women in our society today. Ranging from love, family, career and life as a whole.
 Francesca, Claudia and Amy are three women as different from each other as black and grey. One is a politician's daughter who believes all that glitters is golden. Another believes in struggling to get to the top while the last, takes life as it leads her.
 How do this women deal with the dilemmas thrown at them by life?
 Find out in this story that's so close to my almost feminist heart.
