"O outro lado do paraíso" is a Brazilian telenovela written by Walcyr Carrasco for Rede Globo. It's an original story and it started airing on October 23, 2017. The main stars are Rafael Cardoso and Bianca Bin.


The plot has two phases and starts in Tocantins. The first phase, set in the year 2007, presents the teacher Clara, a young orphan, who lives with her grandfather, bar owner Josafá in Jalapão. She meets Gael, an heir to a decaying family of Palmas, and ends up falling in love with him. However, Clara suffers from Gael's explosive and extremely sexist temperament, but ends up being advised by Sophia, her mother-in-law, to be more understanding of her husband. Their relationship hides an ambition for Josafá's land, where a depleted emerald mine has been discovered, in which neither he nor his granddaughter has the least interest in exploiting after a tragedy victimizing Clara's father and Josafá's son Jonas. Sophia, a domineering, self-willed, cunning and false woman, plans a plan to get rid of Clara, eventually putting her daughter-in-law in a clinic for 10 years.

The second phase, in the present day, presents Clara trying to escape from the psychiatric clinic, without understanding how she got there, but discovers she was the victim of a major coup, with the mysterious Beatrice as her only friend. At the scene, she meets Renato, a friend in love with her, who will help her in her revenge plan against seven people: Sophia, Gael, sensual and dangerous sister-in-law Livia, Judge Gustavo and his wife Nádia, psychiatrist Samuel and delegate Bernardo, while trying to find her son Tomaz, brought up by his father and grandmother.


  • Working titles of the telenovela were 'Preciosa' and 'Prova de fogo'.
  • Bruna Marquezine was offered the role of Clara, however she declined the offer and accepted to star as the main villain in Globo's telenovela 'Deus salve o rei'. Nathalia Dill and Giovanna Lancellotti were considered for the role also.
  • Cauã Reymond and Carolina Dieckmann were offered the roles of Renato and Lívia, but both rejected the offer. Dieckmann was already reserved for the new telenovela by Aguinaldo Silva and Reymond was filming a movie.
