Ana Maria is in love with Julio, a moderately successful guitar player. When Ana appears at a tavern and sings the fado, both the public and the critics love her. Eventually, she becomes well-known, which leads to many new "friends": some are young, Bohemian guitarists, who want to accompany her; others are older, wealthier and powerful men, who wish to become her lover. Julio feels betrayed and decides to deal with his insecurities by running off to one of Portugal's African colonies. Knowing he's going to leave and she'll never see him again, Ana Maria is torn between her first love and the rich and famous.

DVD-R is in Portuguese with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 111 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
