Jessie is an unemployed single-parent who has been ordered 100 hours of community service for shoplifting. Whilst on duty at an old-peoples-home, she meets the grumpy old “General”, and the two of them develop an unlikely friendship. Miguel Alexandre’s socio-critical comedy is both realistic and emotive.
