Rodolfo, a dentist with a love for leafy plants and soccer, is unsatisfied with his life and decides to leave his chain smoking second wife. Instead, he aims at tangling his way into getting back together with his ex-wife Gracelia and daughter Ana. Gracelia observes Rodolfo’s efforts coldly and without interest and instead involves herself with the doctor taking care of her dying aunt. At the same time, 16-year-old Ana is going through a teenage rebellion: cutting classes, seducing the house painter and watching reruns of the soap opera »Chesterfield Girls« with her mom.

To the tunes of the Latin-American Britpop phenomenon Astroboy and Uruguayan 1990’s band El Cuarteto de Nos, we follow how these paralleled and paradoxical everyday lives intertwine. »3« is a heart- warming and hilarious drama-comedy where absurd situations illustrate the lack of communication in this typical modern dysfunctional family.
