However, when he travels to Parazinho, he is enchanted by Ritinha, a young woman who loves the fascination exerted by men, such as playing a mermaid, which she actually believes to be. Ritinha is engaged to Zeca, a truck driver who has rude but quiet friendly behavior.

Ritinha continues her game of seduction with Ruy, because she intends to follow her impulses. Despite criticism that he hears about the Ritinha, Zeca loves her above anything. On the day of the wedding he finds out about Ritinha’s fling with Ruy and he angrily leaves Parazinho after Ritinha runs away with Ruy, supposedly because she feared of Zeca’s violent temper.
