An aging couple clash in the way they respond to the realization that their golden years are just around the corner in this romantic comedy about the joys and challenges of growing old together. Adam (William Hurt) and Mary (Isabella Rossellini) have been married for decades. They've both got rewarding careers, a supportive circle of friends, and gorgeous grandchildren. Living a rich and active life has kept them both young at heart, so upon realizing they will soon become senior citizens, Adam goes into full denial while Mary embraces her maternal instincts. But the harder Adam clings to his youth, the faster it seems to slip away. Meanwhile, Mary's plan to prepare for the inevitable begins raising serious concerns among her friends and family.
