The Heiresses

Directed by MARCELO MARTINESSI

NT PREMIERE

Chela and Chiquita, both descended from wealthy families in Asunción, Paraguay, have been together for over 30 years. Recently their financial situation has worsened and when their debts lead to Chiquita being imprisoned on fraud charges, Chela is forced to face a new reality. Driving for the first time in years, she begins to provide a local taxi service to a group of elderly wealthy ladies, meanwhile embarking on her own personal, intimate revolution.

A finely-crafted, beautifully realized debut that exquisitely balances character study with shrewd commentary on class, desire, and the lingering privileges of Paraguay’s elite.
