The film written and directed by the filmmaker Marcelo Martinessi is his feature film debut after directing some short films, and it introduces us to the life of Chela and Chiquita, a couple of lesbian women with advanced age who are separated when one of them is imprisoned after being accused of a crime of fraud. Chela, who until now had survived with Chiquita in a suburb of Asunción, will see her life turned upside down when she gets a job opportunity and has a new romantic interest in the horizon.

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".
