Age is nothing but a number. But those are some numbers!

Young@Heart is a choir from Northampton, Massachusetts, who has gained worldwide attention due to their unconventional cover versions of popular hits by artists such as Sonic Youth, Coldplay, The Ramones and James Brown. Much of the attention is undoubtedly due to the fact that the choir consists exclusively of senior citizens with an average age of 80. YOUNG@HEART tells the inspiring story of the individuals within the choir, their challenges and aspirations, and, perhaps most of all, their never-say-die spirit.
