After a pivotal romantic encounter at the end of their senior year, two childhood best friends reflect on the history of their relationship and the impending future of it that hangs in the balance.

United States / 33 min / Director Deborah Craig

This is a documentary about older lesbians aging with dynamism and zest for life. When they were young, these women forged a social movement to come out as true to themselves. Now they are pioneers once again as they face the next daunting challenge: growing old, which can come with frailty, loneliness, and the death of dear friends. In this group portrait, these women are courageous role models for aging, which they do with determination, engagement, an independent and irreverent spirit and a heartening delight in living.
