This low-key charmer follows sixtyish Roman Gianni, who lives with his tyrannical 93-year-old mother and finds himself forced to look after three other elderly ladies during the summer holidays. The aging women prove a handful, while the grudging host attempts to monitor their pill intake and pacify them with food.
