Description:
  CHANCE deals with the hard issues of class differences in Latin America in a satirical, witty comedy about two live-in maids who take over their employer’s household.

Toña and Paquita work as live-in housemaids at the Gonzales-Dubois, an aristocratic family in Panama. For a long time they have been mistreated and poorly paid. They’re now fed up with the abuse and lack of respect they get from their employers. While the family plans to leave for a shopping weekend in Miami, Toña and Paquita have different plans: they kidnap the Gonzales Dubois’ in their own home and ask for a large ransom.

After sessions of interrogation and ridicule, the family secret is revealed: the Gonzales Dubois household, despite appearances, is bankrupt. All they have to their name is debt. But Toña and Paquita have gone past the point of no return…
