Three grandsons embark with their grannies on an anarchic journey into the past – a complex road movie about intergenerational dialogue. GRANNY PROJECT is a coming of age story of three young men and a "coming out of age" tale of their grandmothers – an English spy, a dancer from Nazi Germany and a Hungarian communist Holocaust survivor. It is 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.
