La Chica del Alquiler, a romantic comedy to be produced in Venezuela, stars Daniela Alvarado (Valeria), a Venezuelan actress with extensive filmography (more than 10 titles) and extensive experience in television and theater. The film co-stars and is produced by Agustín Segnini (Sebastian), an actor who also emerges as one of the most promising producers in the country, with extensive experience and supported by a renowned main cast made up of Patricia Schwarzgruber (Lorena), and Luis Olavarrieta (Tomas).

When Sebastián thought he had found the love of her life, he is abruptly abandoned by Lorena at the altar, but he is not resigned to her and immediately decides to find her and get her back no matter what. In the midst of the desperate search for him, he arrives at the house they rented for their honeymoon and meets Valeria, who is moved and tries to help him win back Lorena. The plot takes place in attractive locations that reflect an environment of attractive and cinematographic nature.
