Rio de Janeiro, 1050. Inside the conservative household of a Portuguese family, inseparable sisters Euridice (18) and Guida (20) provide each other with a safe space where they can nurture hopes and aspirations. While Guida finds in her younger sister a loyal confidant with whom to share her romantic adventures, Euridice draws from her bouncing sister the courage she needs to become a professional pianist.
