“The great conflict of the series is balancing artistic integrity with popularity. This is my daily conflict and the daily conflict of all artists. How far do you take artistic integrity and when do you have to compromise to attract the public?” – says Fernando Meirelles about the series´central theme.

Mixing humor and drama, the series depicts the detours that occur behind the scenes in the performing arts and mixes the conflicts of the plays with those of the actors who perform them. There’s always a parallel between the plays and what’s happening behind the scenes.
