Dr. Flávio, a rich archeologist, is married to Rebeca and he has a daughter, Beatriz. He also has a romance with the young daughter of an employee, Cidinha. Before the main storyline begins, he sets out on an expedition to find traces of Atlantis. An accident occurs and it is reported that Flávio died. However, his body was never found.

Years pass, and Beatriz inherits Flávio's fortune. She is a beautiful, young, rich, but stubborn woman. For her, life is an eternal search for pleasure. She takes care of her mother Rebeca, her stepfather Anselmo, her grandmother Corina, half-brother Ariel and half-sister Daniela with her inheritance.

One day, she meets a high-school friend, a taxi driver named Dante, who is a simple and ethical man. In a moment of crisis, he offers her help. She decides to flirt with him, but he is not interested in her. Her pride prevents her from admitting that she is in love with a man who does not want her.

Beatriz sets out to win Dante over. She meets "Baron", a guru who is connected to a secret society, run by a mysterious woman, Agatha. Beatriz offers her soul to be with Dante, but Baron says that if she wants Dante she needs to change him. Dante is a man with a golden heart and unwavering sincerity. To change Dante's life, he needs to practice the Seven Sins, one by one. Only then will he leave his ethical principles and abandon his wife Clarice and his children Isabel and Laerte.

The secret society has a hidden goal. Flávio left his whole fortune to his daughter, as well as a mysterious statue. Agatha wants to steal Beatriz's fortune and the statue by manipulating Beatriz through her passion for Dante. Beatriz doesn't suspect Agatha's real interests, and invites her to be the director of her nightclub.

The SinsEdit

The Seven Sins are Envy, Anger, Vanity (Pride), Sloth, Gluttony, Avarice (Greed) and Lust. In this telenovela, each character expresses one or more sins.

  • Envy – the ambitious Agatha wants Beatriz under her command. More than this, Agatha wants to have Beatriz's life. She plans to use her secret society to achieve her goals. Agatha believes that the secret of immortality is hidden in Beatriz's statue.
  • Anger – Pedro is a famous chef de cuisine, owner of a restaurant. He is in love with Beatriz and wants to marry her. He will do anything to discredit Dante because of Beatriz's passion for him.
  • Vanity – Rebeca always wanted to be part of high society. Thanks to her daughter's fortune, she is living in Beatriz's house with her new husband Anselmo, with whom she fell in love soon after she gave birth to Beatriz. Anselmo is a lazy failure and with Rebeca he has two children, daughter Daniela and son Ariel. Rebeca is Beatriz's major confidant and partner. She is addicted to beauty treatments, plastic surgeries and botox.
  • Sloth – Rodolfo's family was once rich, but is now poor. His mother, Otília, is a lazy woman and is trying to manipulate her rich brother Romeu into giving her money. Rodolfo's brother, Victor, is the only one in the family who wants to work. Rodolfo owns a small antique shop and works there to survive. Despite his lack of resources, Rodolfo lives as if he were rich. He is lazy and spends money stupidly.
  • Gluttony – Perseu owns the pizzeria "King of Gluttony", located in Dante's neighbourhood. He is married to Minerva and is the father of Ulysses and Irene. The family can't stop eating, which is risking the restaurant's bankruptcy. Néia is Perseu's business partner. She decides to put the family on strict diet, monitoring every slice they take.
  • Avarice – Romeu, the richest man in Dante's vicinity, is Otília's brother and Rodolfo's uncle. Romeu knows that Otília and Rodolfo only want his fortune. Romeu fought hard to build his empire and is very unwilling to spend money. His only true relationship happened when he was an adolescent, with a woman named Juju. His family separated him from Juju and Romeu left the area as a poor man. Now that he is rich, he decides to hire a private detective to locate Juju. With Eudoxia's help, Romeu discovers that Juju is a widow. He is afraid that she will be interested in him only for his money, and he returns to his old neighbourhood pretending to be poor.
  • Lust – Clarice's younger sister Carla acts as if she is the most attractive woman in the world. She is in love with Dante, although she is dating Aquiles. Carla gets a job in Beatriz's nightclub, where she plots with Agatha and Baron.

The VirtuesEdit

Several characters, including Dante and his wife Clarice, possess virtues that contrast with the sins. In the beginning, Clarice believes that Beatriz is her best friend and confides in her, even though her mother Agripina warns her against Beatriz. During the series, she discovers that Beatriz is not her friend, but her rival.

  • Courage – Miriam is the courageous director of a public school filled with problems. She faces difficult students and teachers as well as financial difficulties. Her brother Aquiles – Carla's boyfriend – is a taxi driver, as is his father Nino. Her mother Palma is a housewife. Vincente, professor of physical education, becomes involved with Miriam, but Simone, the sister of Vicente's late wife, stands in the way of their happiness. Vincente is also Benta's good friend. Benta was abandoned on the street by her father. She is a girl with special powers.

Custódia is Beatriz's guardian angel. Custódia disguised herself as a fortune-teller, and convinced Beatriz that she will be happy only when she finds a man with the soul of an angel. However, Custodia didn't see in her cards that this man was married. To help Beatriz, Custódia becomes her maid, along with the archangel Gabriel.

Later, Beatriz realizes that Agatha is really Cidinha, Dr. Flávio's childhood sweetheart. But nobody realizes that Flávio, whom everyone thought was dead, will appear again to change the course of history.
