Regina, a lonely 65 year old who works on the neighborhood watch for the police in Copacabana, believes to have witnessed a murder in the building across the street, and ends up getting involved with the suspect in a potentially dangerous chain of events that will force her to take stock of her life.

I had the opportunity to watch this movie at Cannes Film Festival and I really enjoyed it. Full of emotion and tenderness. It's so rare nowadays to see stories about the feelings of elder people that watching it made me understand that all generations look for the same things: love, understanding, generosity and companionship.
Fernanda Montenegro again confirms here her career as a great actress. I read that this film has been selected in a great number of festivals throughout the world and has won many prizes. I hope that will help distributors to bring this Brazilian pearl to large audiences in many countries.
