Shelly, a young dancer who dreams of becoming a singer and Jaqueline an experienced singer who has already scored some hits, but is bitterly in the decline of her career. They are companions of the same music band Brega – a romantic and sensual musical scene from the Brazilian suburbs.

Placed in a nightclub and local tv program show business where everything is disposable, like success, love and human relationships, they seem to form a single path of life, where Shelly is Jaqueline’s possible past who is Shelly’s likely future.
