Alice (Carla Ribas) is married to Lindomar, a taxi-driver, and works in a beauty parlor. They have three sons, the eldest of whom is doing his military service, and a mother who works as a maid in her house. None of the three siblings pay much attention to their mother, and they treat their grandmother with the same lack of respect. Alice's life in the female working world contrasts strongly with the powerful masculine presence in her home. Although she's a good girl, the chance to betray uncovers other betrayals she didn't know existed.
After 20 years of marriage, neither Lindomar nor Alice expect much in the way of reconciliation. Alice's husband saves his sexual impulses for the affairs that he maintains, with a preference for teenage girls. Alice pretends not to notice her husband's infidelities.
Enter Nilson, Alice's old boyfriend from adolescence. Alice sees in him the possibility to realize her romantic dreams, changing the course of her love life and finances.
