How The Perfect Family story unfolds

The Perfect Family follows Lucia and her affluent family. Her husband Ernesto is an astronomer but doesn’t know where the fridge is. Their housekeeper Trini has OCD and is annoyingly particular about what goes where. Lucia disapproves of most things her family does but is the perfect protagonist as her humor is a delight to watch. Things take a sharp turn when Lucia’s son Pablo introduces them to his girlfriend Sara, who he plans on marrying. Sara is outspoken and foul-mouthed and belongs to a not-so-rich family, the reason why Lucia doesn’t like her very much.

The plot thickens when Lucia meets Sara’s family. Miguel, Pablo, Sara, and Lucia go to a forest cabin to discuss wedding details. On the way there, she sees Sara living carefree in her young days, which triggers Lucia into thinking about how carefree she was when she was young.
