Brazilian comedienne Matilde discovers that no one will pay to hear her jokes. Forced to clean for the upper classes, the world and household of her new employer Doctor Lane hilariously falls apart. Not only with the arrival of Lane’s fetish cleaner-sister Virginia but more so with the arrival of her husband’s mistress. Charles, also a Doctor, has fallen in love with his beautiful and much older patient Ana. While apples fall and hearts are broken, Matilde tries to think up the world’s best joke -so hilariously funny, that once you hear it, you will die of laughter.
