HOME IS WHERE MY AGE IS – documentary.

HOME IS WHERE MY AGE IS – documentary.

Three life backgrounds and three different ways of thinking related to one story. This film shows how entirely different people: a poet, a widow and a married couple end up in the same place, in one Home for elderly people, where they are doomed to wait for their death. This documentary scratches under the dull surface of third age people, reveals their specific personalities by showing their everyday lives and it gives them the opportunity to be themselves and not just old.
