Bianca is a theater actress – and she’s got talent. But she has to make a living from various odd jobs, including one as a promotion girl, for which she has to dress up in bizarre costumes. At last, an audition for an international film production rehearsal promises the breakthrough for her career. “Riscado“ examines the daily struggle for recognition in the rat race, but also inquires about the role of lucky coincidences in life. Karine Teles was awarded the prize for best actress at the Festival do Rio 2010.
