On the outside, it looks like any ordinary seniors’ facility. But on the inside, a series of remarkable love stories is unfolding.
With startlingly intimate access, director Keller follows three different couples as they navigate the delights and challenges of late-in-life romance.
Following the daily routines in the facility, Keller peers into the kingdom of old age and brings each couple’s journey into tender focus. Despite health concerns, mobility issues, and interference from concerned families, the need for intimate connection and closeness remains steadfast.
From the excitement of new relationships to the enduring marriages, we peek into daily life and navigation of the later years of life, packed with emotion, unexpected twists and turns, the film turns its eye to an overlooked community.
The film gently reveals its unique protagonists, interrupted with cheeky humour, innuendo, heartache, romance, and some of the funniest love scenes you could ever see.
