“I keep thinking that, if nowadays it’s difficult for us to be a woman in our reality, imagine for Pilar in the 19th century? I see her as a hero. She has a courageous personality and the fact that she was raised in a convent gave him access to books to have other horizons”, explains the interpreter in a statement sent by the station to the press this Tuesday (13).

The girl will face the resistance of her father, Eudoro (José Dumont), a farmer and colonel in the interior of Bahia, to free her from a commitment to the villain Tonico (Alexandre Nero). Still in her childhood, she was promised in marriage to the politician in an agreement between the families to increase the number of lands and join forces.

“In a society that imposes limits on you, Pilar goes after other dreams, and this is very empowering”, defines Gabriela, who takes on her second protagonist after Keyla in Malhação: Viva a Diferença (2017).

Alessandro Marson and Thereza Falcão’s serial will also show the sorority between Pilar and her sister Dolores (Daphne Bozaski), which will be one of the fundamental pieces for the young woman to run away from home and enter a medical school.

Pilar will also defy standards by falling in love with Jorge (Michel Gomes).
