The story begins on June 21, 1970, end date of the World Cup, which Brazil wins. Amid the celebrations there's a political and social contrast, promoted by the military dictatorship, where Alice and Renato meet and start a love story that lasts for nearly 20 years, going through several historic events.
The doctor Renato is the eldest son of Vera, owner of a bookstore in Copacabana, and has two siblings: Gustavo, who goes out in the streets seeking freedom, and Maria, who uses art as a way of expression and manifestion.
Raised into a conversative family, Alice is the daughter of Arnaldo, a contractor and supporter of the dictatorship who works for the government, and Kiki, who are always in conflict: Arnaldo constantly blames Kiki for Alice's rebellious nature. Alice regularly goes against her parents's wishes and leaves her longtime boyfriend Vitor, her father's right-hand man.
Infuriated by Alice's refusal to marry him, Vitor accuses Renato of subversion, which forces him to run away to Chile. He expects Alice to follow him, but she ends up not going. There, Renato meets Rimena, a fellow doctor, with whom he has a lot in common. After the law of amnesty in 1979, Renato returns to Brazil, where he runs into Alice again, and old feelings resurface.
- Working titles for the telenovela were'Em nome do amor' and 'Pra frente, Brasil'.
- Although it was originally scheduled to air in September 2017 as a replacement for Novo mundo, chief director of Rede Globo decided that the show would work better as a 11 o'clock telenovela and transferred it to April 2017 instead of planned Licia Manzo's telenovela 'Jogo da memória'.
- Carol Castro announced that she was pregnant, so she left the project before the filming and was replaced with actress Maria Casadevall.
