Eurídice (Carol Duarte), 18, and Guida (Julia Stockler), 20, are two inseparable sisters living under the oppressive guard of their father, Manuel (Antônio Fonseca), the patriarch of their conservative household. It’s 1950 in Rio de Janeiro and the girls dream of better lives abroad: Eurídice, as a professional pianist in Vienna, and Guida as the wife of a Greek sailor she is smitten with. When both have their hopes shattered, the heartbreak is harder to bear due to the separation from each other also forced upon them.

As the years pass, each sister struggles to build a meaningful and fulfilling life. But among the daily hardships, the greatest battle is against the fate that separated them. Will they find each other in time to overcome oppression that suffocates them?
