This excerpt from "Pop" begins where Hy, his son Joel and grandson Sasha are about to visit Disney World. Strolling through the grounds, Hy's lifelong vitality and ability to like everyone, including strangers they meet, is undiminished. Later, several seconds of the Meyerowitz family's old home movies are shown as Hy reminisces about his wife and children and talks about unfulfilled longings when he was a young husband and father. The clip ends with a glimpse of Hy's struggle with Alzheimer's while having dinner with Joel and Sasha.
