The story takes place in the town square of any little village. Several windows open onto the square. In one of these houses lives Maroquinhas Fru-Fru and her window is surrounded by a balcony filled with flowers. On the right side of the square is a pool with a park bench, the stage for several scenes. The drama revolves around a cake contest with all the accompanying spying, gossip and trickery and around the love triangle formed by Maroquinhas, Damião and the Sexton.
