A moving tale of courage and resilience in the struggle for freedom – this is the role that life has cast for headstrong Morena (Nanda Costa) in Brave Woman. Raised in a poor neighborhood in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, this tough, yet humble woman will spare no effort to protect her family and gain her independence. Morena gave birth to Junior (Luiz Felipe Mello) when she was still a teenager and her mother Lucimar (Dira Paes) helps her to support him. Though unemployed, she manages to garner strength and resolve in order to forge her own path. In the neighborhood, Morena meets Theo (Rodrigo Lombardi), a cavalry officer who is charmed by her spontaneity and sensuality. They fall in love, unaware that love does not conquer all.
