The Heiresses - Engelska
Chela and Chiquita have been a couple for a very long time. Extroverted Chiquita is responsible for managing their life together. Chela on the other hand is reluctant to leave the house, preferring to spend the day at her easel. When Chiquita is sent to prison for debt, Chela is suddenly left on her own. She uses her old car to provide a taxi service to wealthy older ladies in the neighborhood. In her new role as chauffeur, she meets one of these ladies’ daughters – the young and life-affirming Angy. The encounter lures the rather passive Chela out of her reserve and helps her rediscover her own desires.
