The film revolves around the two elderly women, Betty and Nancy, who in their spare time are constantly drawn to the mystical location: Coney Island. One day, Betty Bellman buys a used stove and in the oven, she finds a DVD case stuffed with cash. She calls her best friend. Nancy is essentially Betty?s opposite: impulsive, spontaneous and a shopaholic. For her there is only one way what to do with the money... As Betty wakes up Nancy and the money are gone. Betty subsequently meets the stove?s previous owner, a young urban cowboy who wants his money back. People are breathing down his neck and he owes them the dough. Thus begins the pursuit of Nancy, the money, the truth and friendship: A pursuit that culminates in Coney Island. 'Coney Island Baby' is an homage to Lou Reed's song of the same title and a declaration of love to Coney Island.
