Heart & Soul
Benedita leads a perfect life - her boyfriend André has proposed and she has just found that she is pregnant. But as she is preparing to deliver the good news to André she is confronted with a shocking truth: his job as the skipper on a yacht is nothing more than a cover for his real line of work - human trafficking. Not knowing what to do or where to go, she turns to her beloved grandfather Albano - oblivious to the fact that he himself is at the head of the criminal gang that André works for. Albano orders Benedita’s death in order to save himself, but the murder attempt is botched and she survives, waking from a coma to give birth to a baby girl. Knowing that her life can not possibly go back to normal, Benedita leaves her daughter to be fostered by the local church, fakes their death together, and leaves the country with a traveling circus group, reinventing herself as Diana. After 20 years away a deep yearning calls Diana back home, and thinking that enough time has passed for her old life to have been forgotten, she returns to Portugal. But it doesn’t take long for her to come face to face with her past, and she soon finds herself fighting again for a better life for her daughter, who has been raised by a woman with a heart of pure evil.
