Acclaimed Brazilian filmmaker Karim Aïnouz brilliantly recreates 1950s Rio de Janeiro in Invisible Life, a tropical melodrama about two inseparable sisters: Eurídice (Carol Duarte) and Guida (Julia Stockler).

They live restricted lives with their conservative parents. However, each nourishes a passionate dream: Eurídice of becoming a renowned pianist; Guida of finding true love. In a shocking turn of events, they are separated and forced to live apart.
