Eighty-year-old Carla, 76-year-old Lilli and 74-year-old Meta all live by very modest means: Carla is in a retirement home, where alcohol and cigarettes are strictly forbidden; Lilli lives with her daughter and three grandchildren in a dilapidated old house; Meta is terrorized by her son. They find their solace in playing cards, where the kitty has the specific purpose of fulfilling one last desire: a trip at sea! But as the ladies go to deposit their savings in the bank, the bank is robbed and everything is gone. The solution: rob a bank themselves! Easier said than done. The side effects of old age are not exactly conducive to such adventurous endeavors.
An endearing tragicomedy about getting older, life and late-blooming love.
