Set in 1950s Rio de Janeiro, the film revolves around two sisters, living restricted lives with their conservative parents. However, each nourishes a passionate dream: Eurídice of becoming a renowned pianist; Guida of finding love. In a dramatic turn of events, they are separated and forced to live apart. They take control of their destinies, while never giving up hope of finding one another.
A tale of two sisters and the mental trauma they endure as they're unfairly separated due to the conservative and misogynistic mindsets washed into the naive and ignorant; mindsets that have been perpetuated throughout time via cultures, governments and religions established to control. Predominantly set in 1950's Rio and reminiscent of the great films of that time, beautiful performances convey the oppression and struggle so many had to fight against, and still do - bringing the invisible and unseen to your attention.
