After leaving her daughter in a small town in Pernambuco to be raised by relatives, Val spends the next 13 years working as a nanny to Fabinho in São Paulo. As Fabinho’s college entrance exams roll around though, her daughter calls and gives her what seems to be a second chance. Jessica wants to come to Sao Paulo to take her exams. Filled with joy as well as apprehension, Val gets ready for the long-dreamed moment of being near her daughter again. But when Jessica arrives, cohabitation is not easy. She doesn’t behave in conformity to what is expected of her and everyone will be affected by the girl’s personality and candor.
