Three grandsons embark with their grannies on an anarchic journey into the past - a complex road movie about intergenerational dialogue in Great Britain, Germany and Hungary. Granny Project is a coming of age story of three young men and a ‘coming out of age’ tale of their grandmothers, an experiment to form a language which the forthcoming generations could use to keep the values, generated in the 20th century, alive.
The film deals with classic values and taboo-like historical topics - and the method used is equally important as it gives an insight to the zeitgeist of the young today.
