Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s. The joyful and self-determined sisters Eurídice and Guida still have their whole lives ahead of them: while talented musician Eurídice is dreaming of training at the Vienna Conservatory, Guida follows her supposedly true love to Greece. The two inseparable women plan to stay in touch by intensely corresponding. However, the course of life, patriarchal society, and not least their own father, foresee a different fate. Years later, the two sisters – without knowledge of one another – once again reside in the same city. Brazilian master director Karim Aïnouz stages a colourful, bittersweet and sensual melodrama around two ‘invisible’ women’s lives.
