Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Filled with rock music from beginning to end, this teen-oriented drama tells the story of Bete Balanco's (Débora Bloch) rise to musical stardom from modest beginnings. Bete gets away from under the thumb of her parents and goes to Rio with her photographer-boyfriend to start her climb from nobody to somebody -- all with the support of her best friend Paulinho, her roommate in Rio. Her success story is told through many performances, video clips (as on MTV), and well-constructed characters who talk and act believably for their time and place.
