The central couple's relationship is complicated yet again by Massimo's dangerous family connections and the introduction of a mysterious "gardener" named Marcelo "Nacho" Matos (Simone Susinna) who starts to care for Laura after she catches who appears to be Massimo cheating with his former lover, Anna.

However, it turns out that it's not actually Massimo but his twin brother, Adriano, who devised a dark plan with Anna to ruin Massimo's life.

After trying to run away from Massimo, Nacho takes Laura to his home, and Laura starts fantasizing him in sexual acts. The pair even enjoy some time at the beach, but she soon discovers his secret.

No, Laura did not die in the end of 365 Days: This Day.

While the sequel ended with another cliffhanger, leaving fans wondering if Laura survived the shot, Netflix already confirmed a third and final movie is in the works with Anna-Maria Sieklucka set to reprise her role as Laura.

The 365 Days movies are based on the trilogy of erotic novels by Blanka Lipińska. The first movie is based on the first novel, 365 Days; the second film 365 Days: This Day is based on the second novel, This Day; and the third movie will likely be based on the third book, The Next 365 Days.

If you read the third book, you already know that Laura survives the shooting thanks to a fast-acting doctor, so her story is clearly far from over. However, while the bullet wound doesn't kill Laura, she is set for more challenges ahead as her relationship with Massimo becomes more complicated.

The end of 365 Days: This Day sets up her plot from which she recovers, runs away from Nacho, and gets kidnapped by Massimo, once again, in an attempt to make her fall back in love with him. There's also a scene wherein Masimo kills Laura's dog, but it's likely that Netflix will cut out that brutal scene from the streamer's adaptation.

The novel also answers the question about who Laura will end up with: Massimo or Nacho?
