In this reverse coming-of-age musical comedy-drama, four seniors plot to regain control of their finances and escape their southern Ontario retirement home. A newcomer upsets the status quo at Alpine Home, unleashing repressed desires and igniting conflict between staff and residents and their adult children. These struggles, and their dreams for their futures, create a bond between four of the home’s residents. They embark on a journey that forces them to wrestle with the power of choice and its consequences, and that challenges stereotypes about age, love, family, friendship … and freedom. (
