Story

18 year old Luiza has been in treatment at the mental hospital for a couple of years. She lives in her own world filled with fairylike creatures and unreal characters. Her nouveau-riche parents couldn’t accept their daughter’s oversensitivity and placed her in a mental institution. There she meets Fabio, a gangster who is trying to get a certification of mental illness so that he can fulfill his mission of killing a high-ranking police officer. Fabio is the only person who shows Luiza understanding and kindness. Their acquaintance slowly turns into a love that will be put to the test.
