Homer and Estrella are a couple living a simple life in a subdivision called Progressive Village. Homer is a regular employee in an electronics company while Estrella is just a plain housewife. They have been happily married for 3 years but they don't have a child yet. Both are longing to have a child since the first day of their marriage.
Estrella became doubtful of herself so one day, she went secretly to a doctor to check why they still don't have a baby until now. After she has been examined, she was asked to go back after one day to check the laboratory results. When she got home, Homer was already home from work and asked her where she went but she lied; she is ashamed to tell her husband that she's now concerned about not having a baby until now. Although Homer didn't say anything after that, she had a clue that he didn't believe her by the look on his eyes.
The next morning, after her husband has gone for work, Estrella went back to the doctor. She sat outside the room nervously waiting for the results. The doctor went out of the room with an expressionless face.
"How was the result, doctor?" she asked.
"I'm sorry to say this, Estrella. You can't have a baby. You are barren."
Tears began falling on her cheeks as she felt like heaven and earth fell upon her. "How can I tell Homer? He's really longing to have a baby and he would be very disappointed to know this," she told herself.
She still looks shocked while walking towards the glass doors of the hospital when she suddenly saw her husband coming. She hid herself beside some group of people so that Homer will not notice her and looked at where he is going; indeed, he went inside. Homer passed the hallway without noticing her.
When she got home, she was really confused. She remembered Homer's face as she was telling him a lie yesterday.
"I knew it, he didn't believe my lies. But how did he know I was going to the hospital?" she asked herself...
