In order to bring to life his most ambitious building, Sérgio, a 55-years-old architect, needs to take over the family’s construction company. To do so, he puts together a secret plan that depends on the inheritance of his father Heitor, owner of the company and suffering from a terminal illness. But Sérgio discovers that Heitor started a second family with Suzana, a stranger who by law holds half of his father’s estate. Thus begins an obsessive and revealing search for Heitor’s past, with the power to demolish Sérgio and his dream.
