Old people are capable. This is the unifying statement of the League of Pensioners.

79 yr old Martha Andersson has a plan. The retirement home she and four friends (Anna-Greta, Christina, Brains & Rake) live in has changed ownership and the place has gone downhill to the point where prisoners are better treated and taken care of. This gives Martha an idea and the League of Pensioners is formed with the goal to perpetrate a crime big enough that they can live out their days in the luxury of the prison she saw a documentary about.

The adventures they get into is a fast paced race through thefts and robbery and a stint in prison.

This was both a sad story - how poorly old people are taken care of and ignored and written off, and one of great adventure, determination and getting on with what needs to be done to have a wonderful life. 5/5
