Aspiring actress Marina arrives in São Paulo with dreams of independence and fulfillment. She shares an apartment on Avenida Paulista with Suzana, a lawyer with an air of mystery. A few floors up lives Jay, a frustrated author searching for meaning in his life. At a nightclub, Marina becomes obsessed with a singer, Justine. At the courthouse, Suzana begins a relationship with a colleague, Gil. In the streets, Jay takes in a prostitute named Michelle as his muse. At the breakneck pace of the city, the three Paulistas will live the euphoria of passion and its flipside, taking the audience along on a journey full of surprises.
