Synopsis

A chorus of senior citizens, who range in age from 72 to 93, cover a unique repertoire of punk, rock and rhythm-and-blues, including songs by The Clash, Coldplay, The Talking Heads, and other unexpected musicians.

We follow the group as they prepare for their new show entitled "Alive and Well" led by their demanding, but supportive, musical director. They struggle with some challenging numbers, and give new meaning to James Brown's "I Feel Good." At a time of life when most people are expected to be slowing down, these men and women are up on stage singing their hearts out about the big taboos surrounding old age: love and sex, loss of youth, loneliness and death. In their mouths, familiar lyrics take on a whole new meaning. What ultimately emerges is a funny and unexpectedly moving testament to friendship, creative inspiration, and reaching beyond expectations.
