Most Beautiful Thing Season 2 Plot: What Can it be About?
A wonderful tale of self-discovery and realization of one’s dreams, ‘Most Beautiful Thing’ is set in the vibrant, eclectic, and colorful backdrop of Rio De Janeiro. During the period of the 50s to 60s, this progressive Brazilian city had witnessed one important cultural rise — the emergence of Bossa Nova — a style of music which fuses with samba with jazz.
Amidst this great cultural transformation in Brazil, we are introduced to Maria Luiza Vilaverde or Malu. She is a wealthy, dutiful young woman, who has always been under the protective cover of her dad and husband. She moves to Rio in order to start a restaurant with her better half. But soon upon reaching, she discovers that her husband has abandoned her and left with all her money.
Heartbroken and distraught, Malu now has two choices — accept her fate or choose to fight it, And as expected, she opts for the latter alternative and decides to face her situation, instead of returning to her strict father — much to his dismay. Inspired with the new wave of Bossa Nova, which is now taking the new generation by storm and flooding the city, Malu opens her own live music venue in the restaurant.
Along the way, she meets new friends, finds her place in the world, discovers her true rhythm, and encounters the seductive musician Chico — who gradually turns out to be her new love. In her journey, there are mainly three women who help her through her ordeals: her childhood friend with a charming voice -Lígia, a determined, strong lady – Adelia, and an upcoming, independent writer – Thereza.
