In Hidden Truths (Verdades Secretas), an obsessive passion places mother and daughter in a dangerous love triangle.
Arlete is a naive teenager who always wanted to be a top model. After her parents' divorce she moves to bustling São Paulo with her conservative mother and grandmother. When a financial crisis hits them, Arlete finds in her dream a chance to give her family a better life.
Soon the ambitious businesswoman Fanny falls for Arlete's looks and invites her to work for her fashion agency. In this new universe, Arlete receives a complete makeover, changing not only her image but her name as well: now she will be known as Angel. But behind the catwalk's glamour there is a prostitution scheme controlled by the immoral Fanny that will change forever the new top model's life: the pink book.
