Marco, a Brazilian who left his country to live in Italy many years ago, is a successful businessman, married to Julia. One day, he receives an unexpected phone call from Julia’s brother Ayrton, who informs him that their father died. Marco is forced to return to Brazil and to face the life he left when he moved to Rome. What seemed to be a short trip, continues after the discovery of the Manuela’s existence, his half-sister, born by an extra-marital affair of their father, and who lives in a psychiatric clinic. Manuela, like Marco, is a victim of their father’s bad decisions. Marco soon identifies himself with his sister. This change in Marco’s life upsets his whole way of life, causing profound change, bringing him to review his relationship with their brothers, and making him find a family that had been lost.
