This biographical film explores the professional and personal life of the singer Elis Regina. It offers a trip into the atmosphere of the Bresil of the sixties and the seventies. A real effort of reconstitution of the choreography, cloth, furniture, etc. has been made. The actress performs very well in different areas. Time passes quickly as it has several rebounds.
