Summary
After their bus breaks down on a sightseeing trip, a group of women -- a 31-year old driver and seven unacquainted elderly passengers, the oldest of whom is 92 years old must make their way to a abandoned vacation house, and spend a few days together waiting until a rescue can be arranged. Their crisis becomes the basis for good humor, spirit and resourcefulness. The women spend their time listening to bird calls, making drawings, enjoying the scenery and sharing reminiscences of their very disparate lives
