Set in Rio de Janeiro, this is the story of a boy searching for the father he never knew and a woman looking for a second chance at life. The woman is embittered by life and spends her days in a job she hates - writing letters for customers she refers to as trash.

But when the boy enters her life, the two set out on a journey of discovery to find the boy's father and also to find themselves. (Keep your hanky handy.)
