Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Bored of weak tea and potted geraniums, exasperated by the indignities of aging, Hendrik has decided to rebel - on his own terms. He begins writing an exposé: secretly recording the antics of day-to-day life in his retirement home, where he refuse to take himself or his fellow "inmates" too seriously. With an eccentric group of friends he founds the wickedly anarchic Old-But-Not-Dead Club - Rule #3: No Whining Allowed - and he and his best friend, Evert, gleefully stir up trouble, enraging the home's humorless director and making themselves into unlikely heroes. And when a sweet and sassy widow moves in next door, he polishes his shoes, combs what is left of his hair, and determines to savor every ounce of joy in the time he has left, with hilarious and tender consequences.
