To Love Too Much..., is the moving story of a woman who, after a difficult journey through love and loneliness finds her true essence. Laura and Beatriz are two sisters in search of a dream in common: to run a guest house abroad and live off the rents. Laura travels to Spain to start off the project, and Beatriz remains alone in Mexico waiting for the right moment to catch up to her sister. While Beatriz nurtures the desire of moving away, she begins to feed off dreams and fantasies. In the midst of easy love affairs that earn her enough money to support Laura, Beatriz meets Carlos, a man with whom she travels throughout Mexico, discovering the inimaginable beauty of her country, her soul and her own body.
