In Sao Paulo, Val has been working for 13 years in an elegant house as Fabinho's nanny since he was a child. Val's estranged teenage daughter Jessica, who lives in Pernambuco, was raised by her father and another woman but financially supported by Val. When Jessica calls her mother to tell her she will travel to Sao Paulo to take the entrance exam for one of the best universities in the city, val asks her employers for permission to have Jessica stay with her. They agree and the teenager is welcomed by the family. But soon she becomes a problem for Val since she does not conform to the submissive nature expected of domestic workers, breaking class barriers and disturbing relationships in the house.
