But when they finally come face to face, tragedy strikes and Renato dies. With this, Christian sees a unique opportunity and decides to take his brother's place, leaving behind his identity and his great love. In this new life, fortune, success and social status will make him a new person.
"A Life Do Die For!", written by International Emmy winner Mauro Wilson, tells the story of the quartet formed by a friendly and broke former soccer player, a rich and arrogant surgeon, a powerful and arrogant executive, and a con man with a heart of stone. They are victims of a plane crash on the same day they meet and end up dying. When they meet Death, they are told that their time to go has not yet come, and that they must return to life to deal with their personal problems. However, Death warns them that in a year, one of them will actually die, and the four decide to take this second chance to achieve their greatest goals in life.
"A Trick of Fate", directed by Luiz Henrique Rios, director of "Total Dreamer" and "A Life Worth Living", the soap opera is a love story between the magician Davi and the model Isadora.
