Rio de Janei­ro, 1950. Eurí­di­ce, 18, and Gui­da, 20, are two inse­pa­ra­ble sis­ters living at home with their con­ser­va­ti­ve par­ents. Alt­hough immer­sed in a tra­di­tio­nal life, each one nou­ris­hes a dream: Eurí­di­ce of beco­m­ing a renow­ned pia­nist, Gui­da of fin­ding true love. In a dra­ma­tic turn, they are sepa­ra­ted by their father and forced to live apart. They take con­trol of their sepa­ra­te desti­nies, while never giving up hope of fin­ding each other. Adap­ted from a novel, Karim Aïnouz’s film is an astu­te anti-racist melo­dra­ma that reveals the mecha­nisms of patri­ar­chal socie­ty. Behind the his­to­ric back­drop lies the dream of a Bra­zil based on jus­ti­ce, equa­li­ty, and diver­si­ty.
