The elderly nursing home residents for years feel worthless and troublesome. But they want to be useful and experience something uncommon at the end of their lives. As unusual idea strikes their mind - to waive their pensions and enroll in the army as volunteers thus saving the country from financial crisis and spending excitingly the last years of their lives. The oldies are wise enough at organizing this event and adventures begin. The culmination of it all is the participation of the old people's army unit in NATO joint maneuvers.
