Three old men, buddies for God-knows-how-long and WWI veterans, decide to leave their village in France to go live in an allegedly fantastic old age home. Annoyed with their constant practical jokes and childish behavior, the villagers are more than happy to see them go. But after their many misadventures on the way to their new home, an unpleasant shock awaits them.

Drei alte, kauzige Sauf- und Radaubrüder, die durch dick und dünn gehen, müssen bittere Erfahrungen mit der Engstirnigkeit ihrer Dorfgemeinschaft machen. Aber sie wissen sich in diesem umwerfenden komischen, rührenden und melancholisch-menschlichen Filmspaß stets ihrer Haut zu wehren.
