In Rio, Orfeo is a trolley conductor and musician, engaged to Mira. During Carnival week, he sees Eurydice, who's fled her village in fear of a stalker; it's love at first sight. Her cousin Sarafina, with whom she stays in Rio, is a friend of Orfeo and Mira, so the star-crossed lovers meet again. Later, during the revels, wearing Sarafina's costume, Eurydice dances a provocative samba with Orfeo. Not only is Mira enraged when her rival is unmasked, but the stalker, dressed as Death, appears: Eurydice is in danger, pursued through noisy crowds and a morgue. Can Orfeo conduct her to safety? Don't look back.

"Es una película de realismo mágico que toma el cuento épico de Orfeo y lo adapta a un carnaval brasileño. A pesar de que su historia no es la gran cosa, la forma en que transmite sus sentimientos la hace única. Emula el espíritu del carnaval, el sentimiento latinoamericano, la ruralidad y urbanidad. Su atmósfera energética, alegre y emotiva la convierte en un clásico instantáneo. Es una película simple e inesperada que se puede ver un montón de veces. Ese es el cine que latinoaméric"
