Asif is the story of Beatriz.

Beatriz is woman on hers 47 who suddenly break with the rule of the Brazilian society where a woman is born to serve and be on the shadow of a man. Her mother was restrictive, a true believe on the man superiority. The mother view shaped most of Beatriz childhood observing her mother be the last to sit the table after served all the family or be silence when tried to give an opinion about the future of the family.

Growing up in a patriarchal environment had transformed Beatriz in a woman without will, always desperately trying to please family, husband and son. She became a ghost of a ghost, someone without real perspective, immerse in a cage without bars and a life without meaning.

It was the Internet, still vey new and simple in 2009, that opened a new world to Beatriz and made her life changing. The story begun three years after her husband death, when work and her son were the only threads keeping Beatriz going.
Asif came to her life as a joke, a fantasy but the young India man, full of sexual fantasies, lies, and a naivety about the real world outside his community, give the push Beatriz was needing to finally change from who she was to who she really should be.

From Sao Paulo to New Delhi, through India and Europe. Asif (Perdão and Superação) area a journey where Beatriz will find finally peace; herself, and love.
