The Last Adventure of Napoleon Sunshine

Eighty-five years old, a rebel, a retired boxer, Napoleon Sunshine is unlike other grandparents. His ten-year-old grandson, Leonard, is unlike the other boys in his class. Together they are unstoppable. Or so they think.

From Paris to the coast of Normandy, Napoleon and Leonard run away to seek an adventure: they visit the seaside, adopt a dog and plot to kidnap a famous radio presenter. But really they are trying to save Napoleon from spending his final days in a retirement home.

'The Last Adventure of Napoleon Sunshine' is a heart-warming tale about new beginnings and the importance of family.
