Bossa Nova Synopsis

BOSSA NOVA is a romantic comedy about several couples that break up or hook up in present day Rio de Janeiro. It is in this idyllic but \"useless landscape\" for lonely hearts that nine characters cross each other\'s paths and destinies, unleashing new passions. The epicenter of all this activity is an attractive English teacher, Mary Ann Simpson a former flight attendant and a widow who\'s been living in Rio for two years, since the death of her husband, a Brazilian pilot.
