The Fraulein from Germany is hired by the owners of large Brazilian "estancias" to teach their teenaged sons. However, the subject of instruction is not math or history, but comportment in the area of love and love-making. The land-barons do not want their sons to learn their first lessons from prostitutes. In the story, which is set in the 1920s, the Fraulein (Lillian Lemmertz), a very cultivated lady, has been hired to instruct Carlos (Marcos Taqueschel). His father watches the subtle development of her work from the sidelines with great interest. She patiently waits to begin her real lessons until the unsuspecting boy shows an interest in her. This unusual sexual coming-of-age story is based on the novel Love Intransitive Verb by Mario de Andrade.
