Chela and Chiquita, both descended from wealthy families in Asunción, Paraguay, have been together for over 30 years. But recently, their financial situation has worsened, and they begin to sell off their inherited possessions. When their debts lead to Chiquita being imprisoned on fraud charges, Chela is forced to face a new reality as she begins to break out of her shell to explore a personal and intimate revolution.
"A superb first feature from Marcelo Martinessi, this entirely female-driven story is full of gentle wit and playful observations on the crumbling upper echelons of Paraguayan society" - Wendy Ide, The Observer
