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 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.

"It's a quiet, slow burn but one that stays with you."
Sara Stewart - NEW YORK POST

"THE HEIRESSES almost subliminally alerts you to complexities of sexuality and status that many films would prefer to simplify. It also draws you into a social milieu that is both highly specific and intuitively accessible."
A.O. Scott - NEW YORK TIMES

"THE HEIRESSES is the kind of story Hollywood doesn't tell anymore; a 50-something woman daring to rekindle her lost spirit of discovery."
J.R. Kinnard - SEATTLE TIMES
