A story of how to kidnap your grandpa and escape your angry father, a gang of bad guys, and a dragon.
One day at a retirement home, Grandpa Jeremy pulls such a stunt that the Director wants to transfer him to a psychiatric hospital. Unwillingly, Jeremy’s son Jack offers to take him home. Moving back in with his father – a crazy, overimaginative alcoholic – is like a return to a childhood that Jack would rather forget. There is no chance for that, because his daughter Jagoda adores her grandpa. When the old man rejects the idea of living with the family, Jagoda steps in. She won’t let Jeremy get locked up in some hospital. Especially since she overheard that the Director is plotting something against her grandpa.
