Rio de Janeiro, 1950. In the conservative Portuguese household of the Gusmão family, Eurídice, 18, and Guida, 20, are inseparable sisters – until Guida elopes with a handsome sailor. When she returns months later, pregnant and single, her father banishes her and tells her that Eurídice, studying music in Vienna, doesn’t want any contact with her. While Guida fights to live a dignified life as a single mother, Eurídice struggles to be the perfect housewife and a professional musician – neither giving up hope of someday being reunited.
