When a daughter becomes concerned about her mother’s well-being in a retirement home, private investigator Romulo hires Sergio, an 83-year-old man who becomes a new resident – and a mole – inside the home. He struggles to balance his assignment with becoming increasingly involved in the lives of several residents. Warm and funny, The Mole Agent offers audiences a poignant reminder that it’s never too late to forge new connections and embark on new adventure.

The documentary succeeds with its tenderness, while vividly reminding us how easily society can forget its elders.”  (Roger Ebert)
