Written by Walcyr Carrasco, directed by Amora Mautner and produced by Globoplay, ‘Hidden Truths II’ brings in 50 episodes the continuation of the story of Angel (Camila Queiroz) who, in the pursuit for her life-long dream of the glamour of the fashion world, found herself in an underworld of sex, power and obsession stemming from her intense relationship with Alex (Rodrigo Lombardi).
As years go by, Angel becomes a mature woman, but keeps an innocent appearance, despite hiding many secrets. Facing financial hardship, especially when her small child becomes severely ill, she goes back to working as a fashion model and is willing to do anything to pay for his treatment and have him cured.
Meanwhile, Giovanna (Agatha Moreira) gained a great deal of life experience after a long period living in Paris. Back to Brazil, she wants to prove Angel was the one who killed her father Alex to get her hands on his inheritance. Without holding back, she starts a huge confrontation with the model and will invest in several tactics to get the rival to confess the crime and go to jail.
