Winner of eight 2017 Brazilian Academy of Cinema Awards, including Best Actress for Andréia Horta as Elis, the film tells of her ascension from humble origins in an impoverished village in the country to the glamor of Rio de Janeiro. Despite her swift rise to success and international recognition before the age of 20, Elis’ life was filled with tumult and tragedy.
