The Age of Love
The announcement of a first-of-its-kind Speed Dating event exclusively for 70- to 90-year-olds spurs a diverse group of seniors to take stock of aging bodies and still-hopeful hearts. Over one summer, we intimately follow as ten speed daters -- recently widowed, long-divorced or never-married -- prepare for the big day, endure a rush of encounters then anxiously receive their results. Along the way, windows open revealing hidden emotions of this often stereotyped population. As they head out on dates that result, comic, poignant and bittersweet moments reveal how worries over physical appearance, romance and rejection, loss and new beginnings are universal, changing little from first love to the far reaches of life.
