Rosa longs only to be perfect: in her job, as a mother, daughter, wife. The harder she tries, the more she feels she’s getting it all wrong. Until one day her mother drops a bombshell, and Rosa begins to rediscover her true self.

Rosa lives with her family in an apartment in central São Paulo. Her husband is often away on research trips that are not particularly lucrative, so it's up to her to support and care for their two daughters. Instead of concentrating on her calling as a playwright she is obliged to earn a living writing advertising copy for a bathroom ceramics company. Coping with sexual conflicts in her relationship, but also being obliged to tend to her fragile father's needy artistic personality present an increasing challenge to Rosa.

Laís Bodanzky's impressively naturalistic film portrays the lives of three generations living in Brazil's largest city. These are lives caught between individual passions and living the lie. At the heart of the film is the portrait of a woman engulfed by the permanent demands that are placed upon her who decides to find out who she really is.
