From the producers of City of God and acclaimed writer/director/producer Tata Amaral comes Antônia, a moving, soulful look into the lives of four women living on the outskirts of São Paulo, Brazil. Determined to escape their poverty-stricken lives, the talented young women form an all-female group but find their road to success is riddled with sexism, racism, and violence. One by one, they succumb to their grim realities, putting the group's future- and their lifelong friendships in jeopardy...until they learn that out of struggle comes strength, and out of strength, the courage to continue on.
