A festive account of a group of senior citizens from Elgin, Illinois who meet one Sunday each month to celebrate life, laughter, loving and dancing all in a night of live music provided by their peers. This mature group—some even in their ‘90s—are far from elderly as they party in their own version of the fountain of youth.
