Francisco, a poor tenant farmer in the hinterland of Goiás, pursues what appears to be an impossible dream, to turn two of his nine children into a famous music duo. Living in a mud-and-wattle shack in the middle of nowhere, hours from the nearest village, Francisco spares no effort in his quest. He places his hope in his first-born son, Mirosmar, giving the boy an accordion when he is only eleven. Mirosmar and his brother Emival, who gets a guitar, begin to perform successfully in fairs and festivals, until the early seventies when the family is forced off the land and moves to the sate capital of Goiania, where they scrape out a meagre existence. To help make ends meet, the boys play for small change at the local bus station, where they meet Miranda, an agent, who disappears with them on a four month road tour. The boys are already making a hit record and have sung for six thousand people across the hinter lands of Brazil when an accident brings a dramatic halt to their career. After nearly giving up, Mirosmar resumes singing, becomes Zezé di Camargo and with his brother, Welson (Luciano) forms the partnership that will see his Father's prophecy come true. In 1990 Zezé di Camargo and Luciano release 'É o Amor'. With their father's help, the two sons take the radio waves by storm and sell a million records.
