Brief synopsis

Rio de Janeiro, 1950. Euridice, 18 and Guida, 20, are two inseparable sisters. They live at home, and each has a dream: becoming a renowned pianist, or finding true love. Becau-se of their father, they are forced to live without one another. Separated, they will take control of their destiny, while never giving up on their hope of being reunited. A tropical melodrama from the director of MADAME SATA.
