Ilona Siller has taught a senior citizens water exercise class at the Vanderbilt YMCA in New York City for two years. Over the course of that time, Siller saw her many presumptions about the ageing process slowly but surely proven false. In this documentary, Siller's elderly students speak honestly and openly about their experiences to an illuminating portrait of life at eighty. From relationships, memories, and ageing to politics, careers, and insecurities about growing old, these active octogenarians provide a unique and unconventional look at life in the golden years as they speak candidly about every aspect of their lives.
