A strong, independent, career oriented young woman, Joaninha is on the rise until she finds out that she has breast cancer.

Lucinda is unhappily married to a good man, living her mothers' lie. Lucinda's mother, Mama, forbade her from seeing Joaninha after suspecting that their relationship was becoming more than an innocent friendship.
