Maria moves temporarily to Rio, to be near her
husband, Pedro, an actor working on a TV series. She feels distant from her beloved because he spends his day on set. Her loneliness has a faithful observer: Horácio, an introspective young man, the caretaker and owner of almost all the units in the building they live in. Maria’s and Horácio’s relationship is born amidst tension but the conflicts are quickly replaced by closeness that uncovers a completely new world to both - of which Pedro is not a part of.
