79-year-old Martha Andersson dreams of escaping her care home and robbing a bank. She has no intention of spending the rest of her days in an armchair and is determined to fund her way to a much more exciting lifestyle. Along with her four oldest friends, otherwise known as the League of Pensioners, Martha decides to rebel against all of the rules imposed upon them. Together, they cause uproar with their antics protesting against early bedtimes and plasticky meals. As the elderly friends become more daring, they hatch a cunning plan to break out of the dreary care home and land themselves in a far more attractive Stockholm establishment. With the aid of their Zimmer frames, they resolve to stand up for old aged pensioners everywhere, Robin Hood style. And that's when the adventure really takes off.

This is the tale of the first few exploits of Martha and her cohorts in crime. The quintet are residents of a Seniors' facility and are disappointed with it. They take matters in their hand and resort to various activities -not all legal. Even when they commit a crime and confess the police doesn't take them seriously. Till they have to, and then they comment "And we fell for it -so simple yet so damned cunning." That about sums it all - that is till they commit the "Ultimate crime." By now you'll be rooting for them and hoping that they won't be nabbed. Will they?
