Two Raging Grannies is a road movie following two gutsy old ladies on their mobility scooters as they embark on a quest to seek answers to the burning question: How do we get out of this economic mess? 

Challenging the idea that we must continue to shop, consume, amass, and keep the economy growing, Shirley and Hinda take to cities and towns across the US to engage everyone from the recently homeless to university students to growth economists and Wall Street tycoons, questioning the sustainability of continued economic growth, and demonstrating that it is never – ever – too late to get out and make a difference.

Hinda and Shirley’s quest for answers is the drive of this film. The two ladies have been political activists for years. They’re concerned with environmental issues and have found that it is time to investigate and to act.

Full of courage and bonded by a tight friendship they have started the battle for their grandchildren’s future.
