Tired of being left alone by her children who are too caught up in their own lives to pay her much attention, Mrs. Maage (Tove Maes) decides to perk up her isolated existence by offering a 100,000-kroner award (money she does not have) for Felix, her lost Persian cat (she has never owned a cat). The response is truly beyond her wildest dreams -- but at the same time, her son knows all this is a great fraud and instead of seeing her act for what it really was, he is convinced his mother has to be institutionalized. Mrs. Maage is not sure how to get out of that predicament when another senior comes to her rescue, a sleuth in true Hollywood style by the name of Hovard Hansen (Poul Bundgaard, of the Olsen gang movies). Between his trench coat and his Bogart impersonation, he has enough inspiration left over to find the missing Persian cat. The cat, however, is missing from its owner, Dennis the Gangster (Leif Sylvester Petersen) who may not take too kindly to a forced adoption out of his family. Given the activity she has generated by her ad, Mrs. Maage may soon be wishing for a little of the peaceful isolation of her pre-Felix days.
