As Thomaz played his unique music, his audience experienced different types of life changing journeys. His path is suddenly invaded by dr. Alonso, a mysterious and renowned myth researcher, and his beautiful daughter, Dora, who not only want to listen to him, as well as to snatch his gift. However, they will have to face Thomaz' new friend, Marlui, a young Guarani woman, who will somehow act as a true primordial musical guardian.When she senses the danger surrounding Thomas, she vows to protect him from Dr. Alonso at all costs. Can she rescue him, or will Thomas succumb to the advances of Dora and lose not only his heart but the powers that bring him joy?
