Brazil 1932. In a nation undergoing a revolution to free itself from dictatorship the forbidden love of Luiza and Quim develops near the war’s frontline between Minas and Sao Paulo. Luiza is a humble and dedicated countrywoman married to Domingos an impetuous Italian colonialist. Quim is a soldier of the revolution who was sent to the battlefield. Love hate and revenge emerge in this touching story filled with dramatic turns and historic events which culminate in the revelation of a major secret that has the power to transform forever into nevermore; revealing that reason is sometimes beyond comprehension.
