Synopsis: Set in the 1980s in Brasília, the capital city of Brazil, this romantic comedy follows the story of college student Mônica and highschool student Eduardo as they navigate love and loss. Inspired by the song of the same name by Brazilian band Legião Urbana, Eduardo e Mônica is a heartwarming story of how even our greatest differences can bring us together. Despite a large age gap and vastly different interests, protagonists Mônica and Eduardo cannot ignore the intense chemistry that exists between them; do they give up on a once in a lifetime love or do they fight for what they want?
