Cardi will play a small time crook who finds herself in over her head when a heist goes wrong and decides to disguise herself as an elderly woman in her estranged grandmother’s nursing home in order to evade from the cops and her former crew. The film is in the vein of comedies like “Sister Act” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.”
