Malu (Maria Casadevall) remains the determined woman, dedicated mother and loyal friend we met in the first season.

Thereza (Mel Lisboa) chooses to dedicate her life to taking care of her family and her house. But she soon realizes that she is missing another type of accomplishment: work (this time in a radio channel). Before getting married, Adélia (Pathy Dejesus) thinks a lot about her childhood and her father, Duke (Val Perré). She wants to start fresh with Capitão and move forward with her life. Meanwhile, her sister Ivone (Larissa Nunes) goes from a typical teenager to a talented aspiring artist who, with Malu's help, will have the chance to prove her abilities to an industry dominated by men.
