Finding themselves in financial dire straits, Ede, Jossi and Pit have moved in with Hans, old men sharing an apartment. All of them are well over 70 and they all have their quirks and eccentricities; yet they try living together once again as a community. The question of aging in dignity arises and the four men try to come up with an answer, increasingly becoming entangled in criminal schemes, beyond their kitchen table. In the event, it is not just the differences in their characters that cause tensions between the four protagonists.
