The Heiress (Paraguay, 2018)

Chela and Chiquita both descended from wealthy families in Asunción, Paraguay, and have been together for over 30 years. But recently their financial situation has worsened and they begin selling off their inherited possessions. 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. As Chela settles into her new life, she encounters the much younger Angy, forging a fresh and invigorating connection. Chela finally begins to break out of her shell and engage with the world, embarking on her own personal, intimate revolution. 98 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
