Three elderly ladies, Carla, Lilli and Meta, chat about their aches and pains and their fear of deaths approach. Harmless stuff, at first glance. But the autumn of their lives is hardly a bed of roses. Carla cant pay the rent for her retirement home, Lilli is constantly harassed by her daughter, and Metas neurotic son is getting on her nerves. A wee dram is just the thing for putting the cares of the world behind you, and so, over the odd glass of liqueur, they dream of a luxury cruise financed by their card games. Just their luck to be mugged as they bring the takings to the bank. A shattered dream? No way, say the three graces - anything those young men can do, we can do better. They work out a perfect plan, persuade Metas short-sighted neighbour to join them, and return to the bank with a blunderbuss.
Summary written by Anonymous
Meta, Carla and Lilli, 3 old ladies, decide to rob a bank. They see no other choice after all their money they saved for several years is gone. They had saved 8000 Marks for big cruise on an ocean steamer, their last big dream, but when they went to a bank with all their coins and bills that bank was robbed (by professional robbers). Since they are old but witty (they drink alcohol and smoke cigars although they dont have the permission from their children or the senior citizen home) they think that they are not too old to rob a bank. To get some advice from a professional criminal they visit a famous bank robber in jail (Til schweiger).
