LADO A LADO, the Brazilian soap-opera that won all prizes, coming to Canal SUR
An extraordinary story that swept up all the prizes in its time, including the International EMMY as best soap opera of the year, it was even selected by the viewing audience as having the best love scene, the best kiss and the best romantic couple.
Rio de Janeiro, 1903. The city was immersed in its dream of being the Paris of the tropics. Between machismo, emancipation, the sexual liberation of women, the creation and rhythms of a new culture, two women from opposite worlds, Laura (Marjorie Estiano) and Isabel (Camila Pitanga), build a bridge made of trust, respect and friendship that will break down all barriers.
With its controversial subject, its excellent cast of leading actors, writers, costumes, scenery and staging, LADO A LADO (‘Side by Side’) influenced Brazilians’ very lives, becoming a focus of national debate and the subject of all sorts of discussion and analysis.
