Sinopse Internacional Sinopsis

Vera Sontag is a psychiatrist, a woman with a revolutionary, young spirit, who lived the 60’s to the fullest – from fighting against Brazilian’s military dictatorship to sexual revolution. Officially stepping into her senior years, at 65 years old, she finds out she’s about to become a grandmother. But this new life-phase does not seem to fit with her generation’s profile. Things get complicated when she discovers that her grandchild is not being conceived by her daughter Tania, a successful lawyer, but by Tania’s life partner, Vanessa. Together for 15 years, Tania and Vanessa resorted to in vitro fertilization with an anonymous donor in order to get pregnant. The distance between Tania and Vera’s reality become ever more evident. As she drives away from her daughter, Vera gets to know the son of an old friend, an ex-guerrilla combatant, slaughtered by the militaries on the end of the 70’s. Sérgio was born in Chile during exile. Even though she doesn’t like to relive the past, Vera agrees to grant him an interview, out of respect to his mother, talking about her actions during the military regime. As their meetings evolve, she begins to feel fascinated by his interest on herself and her generation. Meanwhile, Tania tries to be in charge of every detail of Vanessa’s pregnancy, denying Vanessa a say on the matter. Tired and confused, Vanessa decides she needs a break from Tania and accepts a job opportunity to work in NY for a few months. Lost and alone, Tania struggles to keep her focus on getting ready for her baby’s arrival, leading to odd situations, like her going alone to a pregnant yoga class. Among conflicts and encounters, the movie disclosures the necessary catharsis that occur when two women realizes that one is becoming a mother and the other, a grandmother.
