The series follows the story of Malu, a young and wealthy woman who moves from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro to open a restaurant with her husband.
However, when she arrives she is shocked to find out her husband has left her and run off with all the money.
Malu tries to turn the experience into a positive one by chasing her dream and she falls in love with musician Chico Carvalho (Leandro Lima).
Each of the episodes has been given a unique title, however the names for season two have not yet been released.
The series is set in the 1950s amidst the rise of bossa nova – a style of Brazillian music.
The show was inspired by a Brazillian bossa nova and jazz song of the same name by João Gilberto and Tom Jobim.
In the series Malu counts on three friends – Lígia Soares (Fernanda Vasconcellos), Adélia Araújo (Pathy Dejesus) and Thereza Soares (Mel Lisboa).
In season two Malu returns with new-found strength and determination, which has been fuelled by trauma.
Thereza dedicates her life to taking care of her family but she realises how much she misses work.
Adélia spends time thinking about her childhood before she gets married, and she wants to create a fresh start.
