1h 41min · Biography, Drama · 1 January 1987
A star studded biography of Brazilian legend Leila Diniz, born in 1945 to a communist couple. She grows up to be an extraordinary woman in her own, undefinable, and unique style, unheard of in Brazilian society. She causes the greatest scandals of her times and breaks social taboos through her association with her best friend, and enters show business, working with several lovers becoming Brazil's greatest star. She achieves this in spite of arrests, prison sentences and other threats from the military government who regarded her as subversive. At 26, she has a child by then lover/director, but shortly thereafter, in a tragic jet explosion, returning from an Australian film festival, dies a very premature death in 1972.
