Description
Embodying strength and stoicism, five Venezuelan women from diverse backgrounds and generations each draw a portrait of their country as it suffers under the worst crisis in its history amid extreme food and medicine shortages, a broken justice system, and widespread fear.

The women - a nurse, community worker, unemployed mother, retired police commissioner and a waitress - share what life is really like for them and their families as the truth of the country‚Äôs difficulties are repeatedly denied by the government. 

A powerful investigative documentary, Margarita Cadenas' Women of the Venezuelan Chaos presents a uniquely beautiful country and people, who remain resilient and resourceful despite the immense challenges they face.
