in 1961, the portrait of The Duke of Wellington was stolen from the National Gallery in London, the first and only robbery in the history of the museum. It was thought that there were organised criminals behind it - until the ransom note was received: free television for elder people. Only fifty years later, the full story of the theft came out. Get carried away and probably find yourself on the floor laughing.

He is sixty years old, quite eccentric, self-proclaimed playwright, taxi driver, chatterbox, activist and above all absolutely tireless. Kempton's wife sometimes just doesn't know what to do with him, his plans and (failing) actions and decides to give him an ultimatum. He gets one more chance to fulfill his activist dreams. If that again doesn't have any results, the fun is over - but of course, Kempton finds a detour.
