The personal and romantic peccadilloes of a Brazilian household come to light in this melodrama. Alice (Carla Ribas) works in a beauty salon and tries to keep her house in order with the help of her mother (Berta Zemel), though with four men in the house it's no small challenge. Alice's husband, Lindomar (Zecarlos Machado), is a surly cab driver who is also the father of her three sons, Lucas (Vinicius Zinn), Edinho (Ricardo Vilaca), and Junior (Felipe Massuia). Lucas has inherited his father's self-obsessed and womanizing ways, while Edinho leads a secret life he hides from his family, and Junior is just beginning to act on his budding interest in the opposite sex. Alice's relationship with Lindomar has been rocky for years, and when she meets Nilson (Luciano Quirino), the husband of Carmen (Renata Zhaneta), one of her regular customers, she senses a mutual attraction, and before long the two are having an affair. Alice experiences a mingled excitement and guilt about her relationship with Nilson, and her agony is compounded when she discovers that Lindomar is also having an affair -- with a teenage girl Alice has been mentoring. A Casa de Alice (aka Alice's House) was the first feature film for director Chico Teixeira.
