Brazilian screen legend Sonia Braga plays a 65-year-old widow and retired music critic who will not relinquish her home and precious memories.
Clara (Braga) is the last resident of the Aquarius, an art deco oceanside apartment, one of the few buildings of its age and character that remains in the rapidly changing seaside Recife neighborhood. Now that the other apartments have been swept up by a company with ambitious plans for redevelopment, pressures to move on surround Clara from all sides.
But she has pledged to leave only upon death. She is a warrior for aesthetic distinction, for critical thought, for sexual and creative liberty - for things that cannot be bought, sold or indexed. And she is not someone you want to go up against in a fight. (Subtitles)
