Through a chance encounter triggered by a stray cat, two elderly women are on the run. Rogue witnesses to a violent crime, Clara, a cantankerous opinionated loner, and Cynthia, an enthusiastic socialite, team up to evade psychotic murderers as well as the police. Along the journey, on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada, Clara meets people who definitively shatter the protective shell she had created around herself. Forced into this adventure kicking and sometimes screaming, she must learn to open up and realize that she still has an important role to play in the world around her in spite of and/or because of her age. She might not have fast legs but she certainly can largely compensate with her wagging, outrageous and sharp tongue. Unconventional, funny, scathing, but also gentle and even sexy at times she bites into life with an energy and gusto that could challenge that of women half her age.

Mathilda brought me years of joy cuddling on my pillow every night – she was a very good friend and confidante as she lent an ear to my deepest secrets. I will miss her always.
