Storyline

Flora was imprisoned for 18 years for the murder of the lover, Marcelo. She has always pleaded not guilty, and now that her sentence is finished, she wants revenge. Her main target is Donatella, her former partner in a country music duo and the widow of Marcelo. Flora blames Donatella not only for killing her own husband, but also for taking away Lara, the daughter Flora had with the killed man. In the meantime, Lara grows aware that her natural mother is a murderer and cares for Donatella as her actual mom, despite having a strong temper and very different personality. Everything is set in a small town nearby São Paulo, where the main powerful figure is that of Gonçalo Fontini, Marcelo's father and owner of a paper-mill plant. Written by Pedro Aguiar

Much suspension to little disbelief
19 January 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Belonging to a new generation of soap opera scriptwriters, the author João Emanuel Carneiro has emphasized the mystery aspect of the plot, but he did not effectively abandon those traditional ingredients of melodrama. as the series ended, Flora, the leading lady ("The favorite one"), had then become the most famous, charismatic serial killer of the entire Brazilian TV literature. The visual treatment of the show is certainly commendable. TV Globo has for a long time guaranteed a regular, high degree of lavishness. The chromatic key has been richly studied, with predominance of tan and pastel hues. But, as far as drama is concerned, there was much to want. Carneiro over-abused of his prerogative to tell a dramatic 'lie.' Of course, any piece of fiction at all may rely on the suspension of disbelief to a certain point, but Carneiro was here more concerned with manipulating his huge audience than eliciting implausibility and - dramatically speaking - handling the true nature of drama in order to convince us of his 'lies,' or, to quote Hitch, impinge us his 'McGivers.'
