Abstract:

"Dona Flor is selflessly devoted to her drunk, unfaithful husband, Vadinho. He spends every night in the local casino gambling her life savings and returning to her drunk the next morning. Something deep inside Dona Flor keeps her from leaving Vadinho; a burning lust only he can satisfy. Suddenly, Vadinho is dead, and Dona Flor's life collapses. She spends one year in mourning and realizes she needs a man in her life. The local pharmacist proposes, and they marry, sharing a stable calm existence. But Dona needs more. Vadinho responds to Dona Flor's prayers by returning to her as a ghost. She finds herself immersed in a love triangle with two men, each one able to satisfy different needs and both of equal importance. Some would say it's a perfect arrangement ..."--Container.
