Youth is always glamorous. We grow old and sigh with regret at what we could have been, should have done and can never be or do now.

A young hip couple befriends an older couple in their forties and it is an unequal relationship. The older couple is entranced by the way the younger people live and conduct their lives. Their clothes, obsession with retro things and an attitude free of materialism attracts them. Their older friends are skeptical and encourage them to have kids. But the couple is keen to emulate their new friends, try hip hop and wear clothes not meant for them. When the blindfolds open and they see reality for what it is, how do they react? Is it the end of idealism and an acceptance of old age or is there a readjustment of expectations and an optimism that old age also has something to offer?

The movie will appeal to anyone facing the question of getting old (and that these days means anyone over 30). The movie has a lot of conversation so if talking is not your thing I suggest you skip this one. But if you enjoy thinking about life's big questions and watching people battling their demons then this is your kind of movie.
