A soap opera about and for the Brazilian worker. A story about people who win in life through their own efforts. A plot that brings Maria do Carmo, mother of five children, as the main spot, a person who won in life fighting for it, but a person which will have as her main battle finding her daughter, kidnapped a little time after she was born. A story about family conflicts and relations spiced with the rescue of values that the society no longer cares about. The plot is divided in two parts: the first one will be 1968, during the beginning of Brazil's Military Dictatorship, and last four and a half chapters; and the second one begins after a long time, the time we're living now.

Senhora do Destino is a moving story of family and ethics. Susana Vieria is excellent as Maria do Carmo. The story is innovative in presenting flashbacks and linking the past and present. This is ultimately a story of love and family. The characters are so well written. I found the acting to be superb and was moved to tears often. The premise of losing a child is so sad but there is wonderful humor and irony often by the villain. Maria do Carmo is such a strong woman, who has strong beliefs, independence and passion. I found this plot to be excellent like Da Cor do Pecado. I think the best soaps definitely are developed in Brazil. If you have the opportunity to see this story it is a wonderful investment in time. I found that I missed the characters and felt the loss once the story was over. That is good writing and acting. Enjoy this ride because you won't be disappointed.
