Shady Oaks Takedown follows the hilarious story of 2 senior care facility residents, Ashley and Ruth, who got more than what they bargained for when they take a Krav Maga class. They soon put their newfound skills against each other, only to realize in time that they shouldn’t be Bighting each other, but none other than the facility director, the iron-Bisted Doctor Strangler.
