HistoryEdit

"Bem me Quer" tells of the adventures of a shepherdess who's spent all her life in a remote village in Serra da Estrela and is suddenly forced to go and live in the city. It's a romantic story that touches on topics such as family and friendship, ambition and greed: but mostly, love. Maria Rita lives with her grandfather, they are small producers of traditional local cheese. She loves her life and wouldn't exchange it for anything, but her freedom and the world she knows are at risk, as the dairy is threatened by imminent bankruptcy.[3]
