If ever someone has embodied the maxim, age is a state of mind, it's 90-year-old Christine Burton. After decades of personal struggle, she reinvented her own life at age 80 by founding Golden Threads, an international network for older gay women. Join filmmakers Lucy Winer and Karen Eaton as they probe mid-life crisis and our collective fear of aging by enlisting Christine as their fearless, funny and irascible spiritual guide.
