Plot

Three sisters, haunted by memories of their dead mother, will try to break the spell of bad love affairs that seems to be on them.

Synopsis

They might be single, but never alone. When Gloria – their mother – died, Susi, Virgi and Malena didn’t feel sad; but even relieved. Nowadays these grown up women live together in their childhood home. They are smart, beautiful, young... So why do they have no luck on love relationships? That’s a mystery. And for that they blame their mother, who had an odd sense of humor and never lost a chance to make them feel miserable; even after her death. Now they try to carry on with their lives, but there seems to be some kind of spell that won’t let them be happy. To love and be loved. They can’t live together: they quarrel a lot, they disappoint each other, hate each other! But the truth is there’s a powerful bond that links them. They do the best they can to keep their house - and most of all - they’re lives in order. But for some reason it’s never enough… “Left on the shelf” is an acid comedy about fragility of human links, the lack of commitment, and the phobias and paranoia that appear when we try to find true love.
