The next day, she meets a young man who looks like the man in her dreams; he's Miguel, a male prostitute who lives with a transvestite, Bom-Bom. Miguel steals money from Fernanda's purse, but still she seeks him out. When her husband goes to New York for a week, Fernanda goes off with Miguel to the coast, in search of pleasure. Using her money, Miguel tries to set himself up as a cocaine dealer. Is this Fernanda's new life? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Housewife fling to edge of hell and back
19 March 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A dutiful housewife in Sao Paulo finds herself accidentally associated with a handsome devil from a sorted side of life she only dreams about. Her desires pull her away from her family to taste the sexual pleasures the young man offers only to find herself in a world of drug dealers, murder and betrayal. But the films title wins out in the end.
