Synopsis

After escaping sexual harassment by her own drunken stepfather, Eliza runs away from home with the help of her mother Gilda, to try her luck in the big city. Her ultimate dream is to provide a better life for her mother and siblings.

When she gets robbed on her very first day there, Eliza ends up living in the streets - where she meets Jonatas, a charismatic guy who looks after parking spaces and sells candy by traffic lights. Eliza starts selling flowers to make a living with his help and they both develop a true friendship destined to become the most beautiful love story.

However, she did not anticipate destiny would bring her face to face again with lady-killer Arthur. They had met briefly before at Eliza’s family roadside joint while she still lived inland. Owner of Excalibur model agency, Arthur has an affair with the ambitious Carolina, editor-in-chief at the famous fashion magazine Totalmente Demais. Carolina defies Arthur on a bet to transform Eliza into a model capable of winning a beauty contest.

As Eliza goes through a major makeover, Arthur falls in love with her. On the other hand, Eliza feels torn between Jonatas’ love and Arthur’s spell. Driven by her envy, Carolina will try everything in order to ruin things for the new girl.
