Since childhood Preta, Lena, Barbarah and Mayah have been fighting to fulfil their dream of making a living out of their music. With their rap group Antônia, they find a manager and begin to put on shows in bars and parties around Sao Paolo. Just as the dream seems to be coming true, their hopes are dashed by the daily trials which accompany poverty, chauvinism and violence, placing their friendship in jeopardy.
