Dad. You're the only person

I know who listens to frevo before...

during and after carnival.

Give me that!

How did the test go?

When you say not bad,

it means it went great.

It's finished.

It's finished, dad.

If I pass the Residency exam I'll

be seeing patients and studying...

at the hospital.

And getting paid.

Atoast to Doctor Veronica.

And to Doctor Veronica's dad.

My daughter!

I've been waiting

forthis day for so long.

Me too, dad.

Lots.

If I died today, I'd die happy.

Knowing I leave you

with a profession.

Are you going to start with

the melodrama, Jos Maria?

Come on, let's dance.

Come.

No. You know I don't like

or even know howto dance.

- Let's dance the frevo, dad!

- No!

What a grumpy old man I have.

I'm going to make the lunch.

That's a good idea...

Dear recorder.

After six years of daily contact...

with you helping me record all

the maladies of the human being...

you are nowfree of me

and I of you.

I'm going to celebrate

this day with a song...

as the last register of my voice.

Those who miss someone

Are never alone.

Cause their affection

Keeps them company.

So when I'm most alone

I have you with me in my heart.

A smile, a hug, a flower.

It's all you in my imagination.

Serpentine or confetti

Carnival of love.

It's all you in my heart.

You exist as an angel of goodness.

And accompany me

In this nostalgic frevo.

Are there any doctors

in yourfamily?

No, my father is retired.

He used to be a bank employee.

Adilson, Dr. Veronica,

new resident psychiatrist.

- Good morning! Hi!

- Good morning!

Mrs. Carmem, your secretary.

- Nice to meet you.

- Nice to meet you, Mrs. Carmem.

- If you need anything, just ask.

- Sure.

And this is your room.

Remember, first you see the patient,

then discuss the diagnosis with me.

Right.

- Good luck.

- Thanks.

Dr. Veronica,

can I send in the first patient?

Not yet, Mrs. Carmen,

I want to get organized first.

Good morning, I'm Dr. Veronica,

and I'll be attending you today.

Good morning, I'm Dr. Veronica,

and I'll be attending you today.

So what have you been feeling?

Feeling? Headache...

a cold.

Some days I get a cold.

And...

Anything else, Carlos?

I take a lot of medicine.

- What kind of medicine do you take?

- Pumpkin color, yellow...

pink...

red.

- Until what grade did you study?

- I never studied, doctor.

No.

So what have you been feeling?

I feel pain all over.

My head is in agony.

Here in my chest I feel this anguish.

Agony all the while, doctor.

I don't eat, don't drink water,

don't go out into the street...

It's the heat, doctor.

It's such a burning heat I feel.

I'm a bit mad, doctor.

I want tojust take off my clothes...

and go out like that, naked.

Because I don't even know whether

I'm naked or dressed.

And where does

this heat start, Maria?

It starts all over. It comes from

my feet and runs up my back.

Whereverthere is space, it's there.

I get this urge to pull my hair out.

I don't know what to do, doctor.

Do something for me,

forthe love of God, Doctor.

I am going to prescribe

a medication...

foryou to calm down.

- And could you please get dressed?

- Yes, ma'am.

How's it going?

I was appalled.

They're separating.

My God, time flies.

You're all fully-fledged doctors...

and I've still got two more years

of university.

Cia, that's not the worst of it.

Everyone in our group is married.

Medicine students are

so square-minded!

I thought I'd get married during the

course too. At least, nearthe end.

How come? In Recife?

There is nobody to meet here.

I've tried men,
