There’s not a single false note to this intimate, immersive and poignant movie which we initially screened at MIFF By-the-Sea last fall and is now in national release. Chela and Chiquita, both descended from wealthy families in Paraguay, have been together for over 30 years. But recently their financial situation has worsened, and when their debts lead to Chiquita being imprisoned on fraud charges, Chela is forced to face a new reality, trying to find her way in a world of matters to which Chiquita previously tended. As Chela settles into her new life, she encounters the much younger Angy.
