While driving his cab one evening, Daniel (Jose Mayer) is set upon by two robbers. He succeeds in driving them off, killing them in the process. It is somehow entirely understandable that he doesn't inform the police of this incident, but merely changes his drive shift to the daytime. He is supporting a wife and son, and there is no telling what the authorities would make of the incident. Later, Daniel's wife (Christiane Torloni) gets chosen as an extra when location shots are being filmed for a popular soap opera. This leads to her eventually becoming a television star herself - and leaving her husband and son in the process. In this melodrama, Daniel decides he is not going to bear this insult quietly, and plots an appropriate revenge.
