When the residents of a Highland care home discover that the new owners are about to substantially put up the fees, they know that dramatic action is called for.
But what can a group of senior citizens possibly do against a big organisation?
For Dorothy, the situation is serious. If she can't raise money she'll have to leave all her friends, like dear Miss Ross.
In protest, the residents barricade themselves into the lounge.
However, their rebellion fails, so worldly-wise Joan suggests a most unusual way to cover the rise - a very naughty chat line for men who want to talk to older women 'in a particular way'!
As their lives take a series of unexpected turns, things get increasingly out of control ...Casting Off is a hilarious, poignant tale of friendship, loyalty and sacrifice - and how it's never too late to try something new.
