About the Film

Set in Rio de Janeiro in 1950, this ravishing period drama follows the story of Eurídice and Guida, two inseparable young sisters living at home with their conservative parents. Even though the local traditional lifestyle has the upper hand, each sister nourishes a precious dream: Eurídice of becoming a renowned pianist, and Guida of finding true love. Due to familial shame and deceit, the sisters are separated and forced to live apart. And while they take control of their separate destinies, they never give up hope of reuniting.
