Clara, a 65 year old widow and retired music critic, was born into a wealthy and traditional family in

Recife, Brazil. She is the last resident of the Aquarius, an original two-story building, built in the 1940s, in

the upper-class, seaside Avenida Boa Viagem, Recife. All the neighboring apartments have already been

acquired by a company which has other plans for that plot. Clara has pledged to only leave her place

upon her death, and will engage in a cold war of sorts with the company, a confrontation which is both

mysterious, frightening and nerve wracking. This tension both disturbs Clara and gives her that edge on

her daily routine. It also gets her thinking about her loved ones, her past and her future.
