Antonio Cesar is a left-wing intellectual who dies under mysterious circumstances. His most recent manuscript has disappeared, and the late radical's girlfriend Fernanda goes on a wild party binge. Cesar's homosexual roommate Andre tries to forget his grief with a series of anonymous sexual affairs. The feature is symbolically reflective of the changing political climate of Brazil. When she feels she cannot live up to her mentor's revolutionary ideals, Fernanda is soon standing on top of a building as she considers jumping to her death.
