The stories of these five Venezuelan women are very different, but all have one thing in common: They are evidence of a serious social, economic and political crisis in their country, which is on the brink of complete collapse.

The food shops are empty and the government has introduced rationing. There is no medicine in the hospitals, and doctors must choose who to treat and who to leave. Crime is skyrocketing. Political prisoners remain behind bars, and corruption and injustice are spreading deeper into the system. The government is trying to conceal from the world and its own citizens the fact that the state is suffering its worst crisis in the last 200 years. Director Margarita Cadenas has created a unique film about the true state of affairs. It depicts the stories of five women of different generations and social strata who are trying to cope with the chaos in their country.
