The Heiresses, a 2018 Paraguayan drama directed by Marcelo Martinessi, will be screened at St James Cavalier Cinema today.

The two main characters, Chela and Chiquita, who both descend from wealthy families in Asunción, Paraguay, have been together for over 30 years.

As their financial situation worsens 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 a much younger man named Angy, forging a fresh and invigorating new connection. Chela finally begins to break out of her shell and embarks on her own personal revolution.

The Heiresses will be screened at St James Cavalier Cinema, Valletta, today at 7.30pm, and again on Saturday at 8.30pm. For tickets, visit
