Laura, a Brazilian Argentinian immigrant, wanders the streets of New York, night after night, chasing the glamor of celebrities. Director Fellipe Barbosa follows her with a fascinated look, entering the most exclusive parties of New York through the back doors. At the end of each night, Laura returns to her tiny room where she hides her poverty and produces her diva image. Attracted by this forbidden space, Fellipe enters his own film, initiating a cat and mouse game that will change their relationship forever.
