Bye bye c’est fini

73 year old Lina Merceis lives in a two-room flat in Rio de Janeiro. Lina works as a telephone operator and after she gets off work she enjoys life and entertains herself with one of her younger lovers. She has chosen to live a single life and rejects the idea of having to take care of some unrefined man.
