Everything is going according to plan for Verônica. She’s just finished her medical studies and is working in the psychiatric department of a hospital in Recife. But the young doctor is full of doubt, about her job and her relationships with men. She has lots of affairs that quench her thirst and anaesthetize her inner emptiness, but do not touch her emotionally. The only person who can move her is her ill father. When he feels his end approaching, he asks his daughter a favour: she should please find the love of her life before he dies. To fulfill his wish, Verônica makes herself her own patient in the search for herself and her feelings for others.
