Setting: the singles scene at a futuristic pick-up bar. Portrait of guys and dolls on the make, fortified by martinis or cosmos as they desperately try to connect with another willing partner. They're all hungry;you can practically taste it. But it's a meat market with a difference. For most, their only contact with the opposite sex is a phone line and TV monitor. Definitely a safety net for those with second thought;till between the turn-ons and put downs, they emerge from their chat rooms to meet the perfect match.

They're seniors of uncertain age, muddling through the last chapter of their lives, warding off loneliness as they search for love and companionship and sex. Until... Written by
A Clever Twist on the Plight of the Aging in America
This film takes you on a pseudo-sexual journey through the eyes and minds of several virile seniors. What you think you are getting at the beginning is not with what you will leave. Kudos goes to the director and his creative staff for approaching this heavily debated topic with such fearless creativity. A quality film should evoke the thought process and possibly release repressed fears and anxieties. The surprise ending should leave the educated viewer questioning his or her own personal views on the plight of the aging in America. If this is a 15 minute journey, I cannot wait to take a full-length journey with this man.
