Anita Rocha da Silveira
Many, many years ago, the beautiful Medusa was severely punished by Athena, the virgin goddess, for losing her purity. Today Mariana belongs to a world in which she has to do whatever she can to maintain the appearance of a perfect woman. She strives to control everything and everyone around her so that she does not give in to temptation. But the day will come when the desire to scream will be stronger than ever.
