In a small Norwegian town, an enormously successful cabaret show is the highlight of the town's year, and thousands travel from across the region to see it. But this is a cabaret with a difference - every participant is between the ages of 70 and 90. The pensioners of the small town of Arnes act, sing, write, paint, build and perform their own show, and the seats are sold out a year in advance. This year though, the star has passed away, the main producer has cancer and controversial numbers create discord in the group. Will their friendships hold, and will they be ready for 4000 sold-out seats in time?
