Thelma Post (June Squibb) is a 93-years-old grandmother, and the victim of a phone scam. Thelma loses a lot of money, but… these scammers messed with the wrong nonagenarian. Enlisting a reluctant friend (the late Richard Roundtree) and his mobility scooter, Thelma is out to find the culprits.

Based on the experiences of writer/director Josh Margolin’s own grandmother, and marking June Squibb’s first leading film role of her 70+ year career, Thelma is a celebration and playful subversion of the action genre as well as a soulful exploration of aging and autonomy.

“An entertaining crowd-pleaser, Thelma shows that every grandmother has their inner badass.” –Courtney Small, That Shelf
