Filled with rock music from beginning to end, this teen-oriented drama tells the story of Bete Balanco's (D├ębora 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.
