Avenida Brasil


The plot follows the dramatic story of Rita, a sweet young woman who struggles to recover part of the life her gold digger stepmother, Carminha, took from her when she was only a child. When Rita’s father dies, prematurely, Carminha and her lover, Max, send the young girl off to live in a landfill, so that she doesn’t stand in the way of their plan to get rich. There, she is subject to child labor under the control of a deplorable man, named Nilo. But, she is lucky enough to meet Batata, a boy who becomes her best friend and true love. He takes her to live with other children, under the care of motherly Lucinda, in a house at the landfill. Fortunately, Rita is soon adopted and moves out of the country with a nice Famille who changes her name to Nina. Batata is adopted by Carminha and Tufão and they name him Jorginho. Years later, motivated by vengeance, Nina promptly tracks down Carminha and surreptitiously infiltrates the Famille by becoming the personal chef of the stepmother that once shunned her.
