Israeli Premier! Based on the famous novel and successful Brazilian film
“Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands”.

Vadinio, Dona Flor’s first husband, drops dead in the midst of the Carnival.
The young widow is longing for her dead lover, that though used to make her life miserable by cheating, gambling and drinking, filled her with passion and energy.

To Flor’s delight, Dr. Theodoro, proposes her to marry him, and she is looking forward to open a new page in her life with the distinguish doctor who is all decency, conservatism and steadiness – the complete opposite of the late Vadinio.

Flor steps with her second husband toward comfortable, peaceful and somewhat dull life.
