Danilo (Daniel Tavares) is about to move out of his parents' house to go live with his boyfriend, Marcos (Diego Torraca), when his parents die unexpectedly in an accident. His plans for the future change and he becomes responsible for his 10‑year-old brother, Lucas (Eduardo Melo).

New bonds are created between these three young men. While brothers Danilo and Lucas need to learn everything they did not know about each other, Marcos tries to find out if there is a place for him in his boyfriend’s new family arrangement. In between video games, glasses of milk, pain and disappointment, they all need to learn how to live together.
