Storyline

Chela and Chiquita are both descended from wealthy families in Asunción and 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.

Tepid at best
17 October 2018 | by caughlan_anneSee all my reviews

Too many cooks? So many countries involved and still a lame and stupid story about two women who go broke ad start selling off their furniture. To stoke her ego one of the women tries an adulterous fling while her wife is serving time in jail for fraud. Who cares? I see this movie got an award in Berlin, but there were better actors this year.
