An amusing and perceptive tale of romance and sexual liaisons in a retirement home. Still sprightly and full of life, a 70-something couple feels trapped by their unsympathetic relatives in the «House of Smiles» for the elderly. When the retirement home staff discovers the couple’s sexual activities, they try to stop them by force. Freedom and escape may be the old couple’s only solution.
