Ex-cop Murray(Tony Barry), is compelled to come out of retirement for one last case, when he finds out his old nemesis Frank (John Bach) is now in the Knightsbridge Gardens Retirement Village(Filmed at the Remuera Gardens Retirement Village, Auckland). In order to catch his man, Murray goes undercover by becoming a resident. He also discovers a world of sex, drugs and rocking chairs where life is lived and being old does not mean feeling past it. However Murray discovers that things are not always what they may seem to be. Although I thought that some editing decisions were less than ideal, overall a worthwhile visit and I loved the ending.
