Lóri is a lonely and melancholy woman who divides her time between her tasks as an elementary school teacher and her romantic relationships, which are always quick and superficial. By chance, she meets the Argentine Ulysses, a renowned professor of philosophy, self-centered and provocative. Even though Ulysses doesn’t understand anything about women, it is with him that Lóri will learn to love and face her own loneliness.
The film brings Clarice Lispector’s novel Uma Aprendizagem ou O Livro dos Prazeres to our days.
