Based on a true story, the film shows the love adventures of the writer Camilo and his friend José-Augusto, who fall in love with two sisters. Even though José-Augusto prefers Maria, he marries Fanny. The characters eventually fall victim of their own beliefs. In this last part of the Tetralogy of Frustrated Love, De Oliveira demonstrates his virtuosity in long shots, in positioning and moving the camera, as well as incredible precision regarding the use of music.
