    • Synopsis
    • When a charming, abandoned, old lady arrives in the Our Lady of Mercy retirement home, she discovers a microcosm of gray hairs, whose only problem seems to be the month long departure of their sole caretaker. Time has stopped in this secluded place, far away from the world’s turmoils. But the house will soon be turned upside down with startling news that ignites passions on all the radios and TV: there is a clone of Jesus in town! Add to these ingredients the budding love story between the charming old woman and an aged mysanthropist who never leaves his room. The news of the clone of Jesus, his appearings and disappearings, the controversies, will spark burning reactions, uniting a group of new old rebels who want to spring in action. Reasserting their place in society, the elderly outlaws leave behind their physical limitations and set aside their past gripes to overthrow the retirement home and to help the new Jesus. Lots of laughs, revitalization and romance abound.
