After many years of service in different government parastatals, three aged men are retired and they all settled in a suburb to enjoy their retirement benefits. How they decide to spend this retirement money remains highly humorous and dramatic. The pack is led byIrikefe (Richard Mofe Damijo) 64, a divorcee with three failed marriages after five children and refuses to re-marry. Irikefe decides to live alone as his covetous children are now grown and also live on their own but patiently waiting for him to die so they can swoop on whatever is left of him. Irikefe is aware of his children’s intentions and wants to make sure he exhausts every saving of his, before death. Upon his retirement he refurbishes his flat, buys a laptop, a nice spot car supposedly meant for a young man, and goes for shopping, for jean, T-shirt, Papa’s Cap, sneakers and everything a young man could dream of. The three men become an item, as Irikefe introduces them to his world of fun, from tracking girls on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, joy riding and picking the finest of young girls home for a nice time, to clubbing. Irikefe is the yippee-happy-go-old guy man, who sags and wears tattoos. He loves snapping selfies and posting them on his social media pages.
