Vlasta and Tonda do not have much longer to live but they do have one more important mission ahead of them - to find the former communist prosecutor who once jailed them and to right the wrong done to them by the communist regime in the 1950s. This might be the world´s slowest action movie about two former political prisoners and WWII veterans dead set on fighting every possible obstacle posed to them by the contemporary world and their own weakening bodies in order to get justice.
Inspired by an actual event, Old-Timers tells an original story about coming to terms with the communist past, showcasing a memorable performance by the leading actors, Ladislav Mrkvička and Jiří Schmitzer, as a duo of DIY justice-fighters.
