Grompot

Grumpy old man Bert Spies (Pierre van Pletzen) is taken aback when his doctor hands him an unusual prescription: To start enjoying life more, be kinder. Desperate to turn his life around, Bert slowly realises how much better he feels when he uses his mouth for smiling at the people around him instead of complaining to or about them.
