    A disoriented daughter. Two true friends. A story of struggle, persistence, and friendship.

    Beatriz, Madalena, and Henrique were inseparable friends, until Beatriz started behaving in a strange way. She becomes more silent, as if she was hiding something. When her grades lower and Beatriz starts losing her temper with apparently simple situations, Madalena and Henrique make their move. Only with the help of these two friends will she be able to recover the joy and stability she had lost. Along the way, her mother’s painful journey continues. Discouraged by a difficult divorce, she leans to the alcohol, the poisoned medicine that numbs her days.

    Come meet these lives and discover that, after all, it is true: together we are stronger!
