Katherine, a seventy-one-year-old widow, can't believe the nerve of her children suggesting she should sell her home and move into a senior living complex. She's so irked that she calls her friend Pauline and hatches a plan-to sell her home and head overseas to visit Europe together...without telling her kids before they go. There's way Katherine and Pauline can kw how random events like switching seats on a train will put their lives in danger. In Paris, they're handed a million dollars' worth of rare diamonds meant for the mother of ruthless Russian arms dealer Ivan Borovsky. This case of mistaken identity makes them marked women when Borovsky figures out that they have his loot. It's a madcap adventure as they travel throughout Europe and dodge both Borovsky and CIA agents hoping to use them as bait to put the Russian thug behind bars. They can't stay hidden for long and will eventually have to face the threat nipping at their heels. Will they show Borovsky that being older women doesn't mean they're easy prey?
