The life of Elis Regina, undoubtedly the greatest Brazilian singer of all time, is told in this biopic film with energetic and pulsating rhythm.
Coming from a humble background, the young and fearless Elis Regina will pursuit her dream and fight to be a singer. She moves to the cultural bubbly Rio de Janeiro of the 60’s and achieves an unexpected, yet fulminant success. Once she gains national and international recognition, her music rises to soaring heights, but success comes at a price and her personal life will slips through her fingers.
