Veronica's years of diligent study have earned her a residency at a city hospital in Brazil, but the patient she spends the most time with is herself — speaking compulsively into an old tape recorder as a means of venting the mounting ennui in her life, be it her beloved father falling ill, her inability to commit to a relationship (instead settling for casual, carnal encounters) or the growing suspicion that her career is proving wholly unsatisfying. A stunning lead performance from Hermila Guedes helps this award-winning, sensual portrait of a youthful existential crisis come to life.
