Chela and Chiquita are both descended from wealthy families in Asunción and have been together for over 30 years. But recently, their financial situation has worsened and they begin selling off their inherited possessions. But 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 new connection. Chela finally begins to break out of her shell and engage with the world, embarking on her own personal, intimate revolution.

Trivia The Heiresses

Ana Brun received the Silver Bear for best actress during the Berlin International Film Festival, the first prize in the history of Paraguay. Ana Brun, the Paraguayan actress who puts herself in the shoes of Chela, decided to accept the role of the film at the same time that she started from scratch with this new name, as she was previously known as Patricia Abente. Ana Burn, who throughout her career had made theater but participated in few films, told in an interview for BBC Mundo that she got the role thanks to her cousin, who has a production company: "I read the Martinessi script and that role is for you".
