An intense, well-scripted drama, this story of a young teen's psychological and emotional abuse at the hands of her immediate family was the first feature-length film for director and screenwriter Lui Farias, son of director Roberto Farias. Adapted from a semi-autobiographical novel by Eliane Maciel, Farias slowly builds a sense of oppression as Eliane (Fernanda Torres) finds her parents, aunt, grandmother, and even her boyfriend Otavio (Carlos Augusto Strazzer) have become increasingly overbearing and abusive toward her. For Eliane, there seems to be no way out.
