This penetrating documentary suggests that America’s social and economic institutions will – and must – change to adapt to a staggering demographic transformation where more than half of the world’s population will eventually be over the age of fifty. Over the course of an hour, the program examines the current social security system; looks at the data being collected on the aging brain and body at a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) lab; explores a town re-designing itself for multi-generational use; and observes a large medical system remolding its work environment to both retain older workers and welcome younger ones.
