Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
When a wealthy Rio socialite takes a poor lad away from the slums to be her boy-toy, the result, far from being a Cinderella story, is a tragedy. The story is based on a novel by Carlos Diegues and Antonio Pitanga. Director Antonio Pitanga co-wrote the novel, produced, directed, wrote the screenplay, and plays the lead in this well-received Brazilian film.
