The Heiresses follows Chela (Ana Brun) and Chiquita (Margarita Irún), two women descended from wealthy families. Together for over 30 years, we join them as they find themselves in a tricky financial situation that will impact both their way of life and their relationship.

Circumstances mean that the introverted Chela is left to manage on her own. She starts driving again for the first time in years, providing a local taxi service to a group of elderly wealthy ladies. When she meets the much younger Angy (Ana Ivanova), they forge a fresh and exhilarating connection – encouraging Chela to finally break out of her shell and embark on a personal revolution, engaging with the world on new and intimate terms.

An immaculate, entirely female-driven drama, this gorgeous debut feature from Paraguayan filmmaker Marcelo Martinessi was a standout award-winner of the Berlin Film Festival, where it received unanimous acclaim.
