- A beautiful morning. Sweet Granny sets out to feed the ducks from her favourite spot at a pond. Before she can reach her destination, she gets overtaken by stuck-up Mrs Messala, a snooty, haggard crone. Obviously she wants to reach the bench at the pond first! But Granny doesn‘t give in this easily: She takes on the challenge. The old ladies enter a race - with their wheeled walkers!
Despite the snail-pace the competition is fierce, and none of the women pulls any punches.
Their conflict escalates in a physical fight - until something happens that startles both of them...
An action comedy for the elderly – the most dramatic race since BEN HUR - and the best chase action since FAST&FURIOUS!
Black humour and whacky comedy underlined by subtle social commentary about ageism, class wars and territorial suburban warfare, as if Monty Python had teamed up with Mike Leigh.
The multiple award-winning comedy by writer-director Nikolaus von Uthmann, which made audiences laugh at about 140 international festivals in 40 countries on all 6 continents.
