Little does anyone know that it is also a way of recruiting criminals for the clique he belongs to and through which he earns good money through several robberies and scams. His lover Atena (Giovanna Antonelli), is a swindler who misses no chances. Unprincipled and immoral, she only wants to take advantage of Romero. But deep down, she hides true feelings for him. One of Romero‘s mortal enemies is his stepfather, Zé Maria (Tony Ramos), whom he accused in the past of killing twenty people during a massacre inside a bus. Djanira (Cássia Kiss) has never forgiven her son Romero for the testimony, because the love of her life had to become a fugitive from justice. Besides, she had to raise her stepson, the former wrestler Juliano (Cauã Reymond), and her adopted daughter, the virtuous Toia (Vanessa Giácomo) by herself. They grew up together and soon started dating, but Juliano‘s desire for revenge keeps getting in the way of the couple‘s romance. Juliano is released on probation for suspected drug trafficking whereas he also seeks for justice and intends to prove his father's innocence, pointing all the blame to the dangerous syndicate.
