“It's a drama of resilient women, thoughtless men and crushingly unrealized dreams, told with supple grace, deep feeling and an empathy that extends in every direction.“ Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times. Rio de Janeiro, 1950. Two inseparable sisters living at home with their conservative parents are separated by their father and forced to live apart. They take control of their individual destinies, while never giving up hope of finding each other. This tropical melodrama is from the director of Madame Satã.
