Every week 10 elderly gay men gather in a room illuminated by neon lights in the LGBT Center of Tel-Aviv. Being part of a community that sanctifies youth, this intimate space is the last and only shelter for these old gay men, a place  where they can age and deal with aging openly: from sexuality and body image at old age, to loneliness and to the member’s status as widowers, divorcees and-or grandparents.
Instead of the typical sociological and biographical documentation, the movie follows these witty seniors and their funny dialogues in the room and gives a humoristic glimpse to the ruthless process of aging.
Director and documentary protagonists in attendance.
