SAMANTHA! is a Brazilian comedy about a former child star trying rebuild her celebrity status. In the 1980s Samantha Alencar (Emmanuelle Araujo) was the star of an iconic Brazilian children's show. Three decades later her star is faded, and she's taking any gig she can to support her kids Cindy (Sabrina Nonato) and Brandon (Cauã Gonçalves) and to keep her now-pathetic career alive. When her ex-husband, the former footballer known as Dodoi (Douglas Silva) is released from prison after a 12-year stint, it creates a major disruption. But the ensuing media frenzy creates puts her back in the limelight, and serves as motivation for her manager Marcinho (Daniel Furlan) to work a little harder on her behalf. Meanwhile, Samantha will do almost anything to become a major celebrity again, including changing her name to Samantha!, performing crazy stunts, and finding ways to be relevant in 21st century pop culture in hopes of reclaiming the fame she once enjoyed.
