Being fed up with seeing the elderly as the butt of fart jokes, sex jokes, and taking forever to cross the street jokes in American cinema and television, writing partners Eddie Levi Lee and Rebecca Wackler decided to write their own version of being old in the USA. At the ages of 82 and 73, respectively, they’re more than qualified to explore this topic. The film’s log line, “Being Old in America is Not for the Weak”, sums it up.
Their short comedic film takes The Wheelers, our elderly heroes, through an amazing odyssey of mishaps, while they are simply trying to catch the bus. When all is lost and they’ve given up, they meet a phantasmagoric old woman, who makes them laugh, but more importantly, leads them to empowerment.
