In São Paulo, a married woman in her 30s lives with husband and two children; she's Fernanda, an interior designer. Shortly after her father's death, a vivid dream disorients her: she dances with a man in women's clothing. 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?
