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. She's a tireless leader who, even when ambushed by daunting physical challenges, transforms herself and others with her own unquenchable zest for life.
From death on the streets of Crown Heights to director Steven Spielberg's controversial visit to a predominantly black high school in East Oakland, the film resists simple analysis and treads provocatively on the fault lines of racial coalition and conflict.
