Audio Tracks 

A group of ‘girls’ in their eighties are attending a meeting at The Rhododendron, the local women’s club. Today, they are discussing an important matter: how to organise their trip to the sea? As financial hardship has hit the club hard and this year the organisation doesn‘t have the money to organise the long-coveted trip to celebrate the club’s twentieth anniversary. The trip is also special because many of the club members will get to see the sea for the very first time. The women attempt to get funding through selling embroideries, cakes and polenta at county fairs. However, there is not enough time to raise money by these means alone. Erminia, the energetic seventy-year old president of the club, her faithful friend Armida, the village‘s best ballroom dancer and Iolanda, also known as Miss Apple Pie, have an idea: what if they make a calendar ang go sell it door-to-door at Christmas time, just like the local firefighters club does? The calendar will have to be something truly unique and special, full of their energy, their longing for freedom and of their desire to get away from the mountain.
