Isabela is the daughter of a powerful politician and grew up in a context of perks and luxury. In her process of maturity, Isabela falls in love with Giovani, founder of a community that preaches sustainability and free love, and, fascinated by a different world logic, abandon everything she had in an attempt to build a different life. It is Father's Day and Isabela does not visit her family for four years. In an attempt to reconnect, she decides to introduce Giovani to her parents and brother, but what she did not expect is that back home she would find out that her father is involved in one of the biggest corruption scandals ever recorded in Brazil. There will be no other possibility but to face and recognize the ghosts of her past.
