A family of Italian descent in Buenos Aires is driven into poverty and desperation by its centenarian grandmother, who is eating them out of house and home. Her language is a hilarious mixture of two languages, but she is easy to comprehend – every word is about food and she does nothing but eat.
Her family’s efforts to avoid ruin become schemes to get rid of Nonna. But the great survivor is as impervious to their plots as she has been to time for a century. Each trap they lay for her springs on one of them. In the end, every stick of furniture may be gone, even the lampshades, but Nonna remains, still eating.
Everyone is threatened by granny. How far will they go to escape her bulimic fury? What will they do to survive?

6-10 Dceember La Nona


I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
