    Examines recent scientific research into the biological and mental mechanisms of human aging and the development of new techniques to reverse its effects. The documentary features interviews with a variety of physicians, scientists, gerontologists and authors-- including several septuagenarians and octogenarians--who discuss the potential of new scientific techniques (including hormone replacement therapy, interventionist neurology, and genetic engineering), ways to ensure a more vigorous quality of life in the final third of one's lifespan, and the social implications of increased human longevity.
