Summary: When Alice, a Sao Paulo manicurist, wife and mother, has a chance meeting with an old flame, she is forced to re-examine her life and address her romantic dreams. Feeling her youth and sexuality slipping away, Alice flirts with a rapturous affair to escape her repressive family life and avoid the fate of her aging mother who drags out her remaining years as the house-maid. Award-winning documentarian Teixeira silently immerses his camera in Alice's household, recording day-to-day minutiae and scorching passion with equal weight and no judgment. The result, called "brilliant" by The Los Angeles Times, is a world all too real, overflowing the boundaries of its Brazilian setting and revealing the dreams and flaws which define our shared humanity.
