To escape the retirement home, five longtime friends develop a bold plan. They want to move in together in the face of illness and great affection for each other.
Five characters who could not be more different. Claude: the eternal lover. Annie and Jean: she bourgeois and conformist, he still a political activist. And Jeanne and Albert: the feminist and the bon vivant. Despite all the afflictions and pitfalls that come with age, they still feel vital, full of energy. So they master the small everyday accidents and quarrels until a big secret comes to light that puts the friendship of the clique to the test.
"With gentle irony but thoughtful moments, the film celebrates a new image of ageing." (ZDF heute journal)
