Lóri (Simone Spoladore), a free-spirited elementary school teacher living on the beach in Rio de Janeiro, leads a sexually independent life filled with eroticism and devoid of commitment. When Ulisses (Javier Drolas), a headstrong philosophy professor, suddenly enters the equation, it sparks an unexpected change in Lóri, inspiring her to break through her emotional barriers and explore something lasting.

An "odyssey into erotic self-discovery and existential desire" (The New York Times), Marcela Lordy's THE BOOK OF DELIGHTS is a free adaptation of "An Apprenticeship or the Book of Delights" by Clarice Lispector, one of Brazil’s most acclaimed and influential writers. The film had its world premiere at the São Paulo International Film Festival and went on to receive Special Mention and Best Performance (Simone Spoladore) prizes at the Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema.
