A journalist decides to discover the whereabouts of Dulce Veiga, (a singer/actress who was a bombshell back in the 1960s and mysteriously disappeared), without realizing how much he would have to learn about himself in order to find her.

Based on an international novel by Caio Fernando Abreu, one of the most prestigious Brazilian writers of the 1980s, the film is a psychological thriller with an atmosphere of suspense, discussing the issue of fame and glamour, and the issues of “celebrity at any cost” in the pursuit of happiness.

The novel is the author’s greatest success and was published in English (Whatever Happened to Dulce Veiga?), French (Qu’est Devenue Dulce Veiga?), German (Was Geschah Wirklich Mit Dulce Veiga?), Italian (Dov’é finita Dulce Veiga?), Spanish (¿Adonde Andará Dulce Veiga?) and Dutch (Waar Zit Dulce Veiga?).

The 2000 American edition received two excellent book-reviews in “The New York Times”, one of them entitled “Last Samba in São Paulo”. In 2002, the film script was selected for a development laboratory hosted by “The Sundance Institute.”

Guilherme de Almeida Prado made his debut in cinema with the erotic-comedy “All of Our Perversions” (1981), later on made “Flower of Desire” (1984) and the award-winning “The Lady of the Shanghai Cinema (1987), “Scent of Gardenia” (1992) and “The Magic Hour” (1998), besides the short-film “Glaura” (1995).
