Synopsis

Ageing debt-ridden lesbian couple, Chiquita and Chela have adopted fixed roles in their relationship: extroverted Chiquita has responsibility for managing their life together, while shy and reticent Chela prefers to spend her time painting. When Chiquita is sent to prison for fraud, Chela is suddenly left on her own. While overseeing the selling off of their possessions, she finds herself inadvertently running a taxi service for her wealthy friends. Weary of the world, Chela finds herself suddenly revitalised when she gives a lift to Angy, a much younger woman at ease with her sexual needs.
