An entourage of British hopefuls in their late middle-age come to Jaipur, India to eke out their pensions. The hotel is portrayed in advertisements as a dream of pampered luxury a place where dreams can come true. The reality, however, is very different. The beautifully observed portraits and emotional upheavals of the characters, portrayed by a stellar cast, make this film a delight to watch.
