It stars Glória Pires, Nicolas Prattes, Danilo Mesquita, Giullia Buscacio, André Luiz Frambach, Simone Spoladore, Ricardo Pereira and Cássio Gabus Mendes in the main roles.[5][6]


The story tells the life of a middle-class family from São Paulo between the 1920s and 1940s. Lola (Glória Pires) is a kind woman dedicated to her family, is married to Júlio (Antonio Calloni), who aspires to be rich and was indebted to finance a house on Avenida Angélica, in São Paulo; they have four children together. The studious Carlos (Danilo Mesquita) is the pride of the family, but has a troubled romance with Inês (Carol Macedo), whose mother is against the relationship. Alfredo (Nicolas Prattes) lives in conflict with his parents for his rebellious and riotous way, in addition to hating his older brother out of jealousy. The spoiled Isabel (Giullia Buscacio) shocks everyone when she gets involved with Felício (Paulo Rocha), a much older man. Julinho (André Luiz Frambach) dates Lili (Triz Pariz), but aims to rise socially, seeing this opportunity in the romance with Soraia (Rayssa Bratillieri), daughter of the rich Assad (Werner Schünemann), his father's boss. After her husband's premature death, Lola starts selling homemade sweets to support her family.

Lola's paternal aunt, Emília (Susana Vieira), is a bitter and millionaire widow who has never helped her family and lives taking care of her daughter, Justina (Julia Stockler), who has mental problems and cannot leave the house for this reason. Emilia sent her younger daughter, Adelaide (Joana de Verona), to Switzerland as a child, but she returns as an adult and conflicts with her mother over feminist ideas and the insistence that her sister should not be deprived of social life, in addition to being sexually open-minded and gets involved with her cousin Alfredo. The rest of Lola's family lives in Itapetininga: her mother Maria (Denise Weinberg), maternal aunt Candoca (Camila Amado) and sisters Clotilde (Simone Spoladore) and Olga (Maria Eduarda de Carvalho). Clotilde lives unhappily away from Almeida (Ricardo Pereira), with whom she broke up after discovering that he was divorced, for fear of judgment, although she hopes to take the courage to live love. Olga dreamed of becoming a member of high society, but she decided to marry her great love, Zeca (Eduardo Sterblitch), even though he is a humble pharmacist, articulating for her aunt Emília to hire him to take care of her business, thus being well paid and giving herself a good life.

Shirley (Barbara Reis) has always believed that she was abandoned while pregnant in her teens by João Aranha (Caco Ciocler), unaware that everything was a plan by his mother, and when she reunites with him more than ten years later, she discovers the truth. However, she is already married to Afonso (Cássio Gabus Mendes), who cares for their daughter, Inês, causing her to be torn between the love of the two, since Aranha starts to show himself as a possessive and different man from youth. Lola's best friend is the gossip Genu (Kelzy Ecard), married to the submissive Virgulino (Kiko Mascarenhas), with whom she has two children: Lili and Lúcio (Jhona Burjack), in love with Isabel.
