Kika is a famous actress. Her fans adore her and she's about to land a starring role in a post-apocalyptic film. She should be happy. She should be at peace. But she’s not. And her obsessive-compulsive disorder makes her “quest for serenity” that much more unreachable. Between her career, a less-than-stellar relationship and promotion of the self-help book she didn’t write, Kika feels lost—adrift in her own life. That is, until she receives a secret message from the ghostwriter of book that sends her on a reinvigorated quest for the happiness, contentment and clarity she’s been missing. 

Tatá Werneck shines as Kika, an anxious and equally infectious force of willpower. Daring, heartfelt and hilarious, filmmakers Paulinho Caruso and Teodoro Poppovic take Kika on a wild journey through her successes and failures as she fights to carve out from the chaos a life she actually wants.
