Ever the chronicler of inter-generational relations in China, Director Zhang Yang takes us into the world of an ageing population and alienation between the generations in his heart warming tale of a group of irrepressible senior citizens all in their 70’s and 80’s living in a nursing home who are energized when one of them decides that they should compete in a television variety show competition.
