The movie follows the story of Chico and Ana while they are moving to an apartment in São Paulo. As they unpack and set things up, Ana founds a cassette tape. It's a mix-tape that Clarisse, the former owner of the apartment, made 20 years earlier to her husband Daniel, Although separated by time both stories will cross paths in the most singular way.
There are two stories here: the first one is about this young couple, learning to live together, sharing their new apartment and so: it's a story of light and tenderness. The second one, nonetheless, reveals a dense conflict of a couple facing a harsh but already predictable break up: the new perspectives they have to deal with, the new individualities, the new self: it's a story of sorrow and shadows. But these are neither idealistical nor cruel narratives: mainly, they are complementaries, part of a daily struggle of any couple. And that's where Joana Mariani, the director of the movie, narrows it: she's always looking forward to share both stories as one, tangling them up through songs that are actually part of the story she wants to tell us.
It's an emotional journey that surpasses our own egos and helps us licking our wounds.
