Three people share a tenement apartment room on the fringes of the city's red light district. Norma Suell (Glauce Rocha) is the prostitute, Vado (Jece Valadao) is the low life pimp, and Veludo (Emiliano Queiros) is the homosexual looking for companionship and sex. The three are nearly consumed in their struggles to survive in a world that could care less about what happens to them. The story was taken from the hit play by Plinio Marcos that opened in 1968.
