Carrasco's creations are inspired by his own childhood to create the plot that takes place in Mato Grosso do Sul, in the Midwest of Brazil. With artistic direction by Luiz Henrique Rios, the telenovela features cast members Gloria Pires, Paulo Lessa, Agatha Moreira and Débora Ozório. “The story presents a great love drama and a struggle for inheritance, within an agricultural, rural environment, a part of the country still unknown by many people, in a matter that we are not used to seeing in telenovelas. I am fascinated by the technology implemented in agriculture today, I fell in love with this environment and wanted to bring it to the screens", reveals the author.
In the plot, Aline, character played by Barbara Reis is a teacher who, after the murder of her husband, becomes an agricultural producer and begins a journey to defend the land she lives and build a better future for herself and her family. She gets involved with the brothers played by Cauã Reymond and Johnny Massaro, who are at the center of a dispute over inheritance and succession in the wealthy family of the rural producer's Antônio, character played by Tony Ramos.
