The Heiresses / Las Herederas
The Heiresses presented by FilmBath.
Chela and Chiquita have lived affluently in a large house in Asunción, Paraguay for 30 years. But when they fall on hard times and Chiquita is sent to prison on fraud charges, Chela must survive on her own – a skill she has never learned. As she makes a go of it, she begins to meet other people – in particular the younger, more glamorous Angy, who starts to give her a greater sense of self-confidence. Illuminating the plight of older unattached women and the complacent privilege of the middle class, ‘this entirely female-driven story is full of gentle wit and playful observations on the crumbling upper echelons of Paraguayan society’ – The Observer.
