Overview

Seven different seniors, each ensnared in the harsh difficulties of their historical periods which range from ancient Rome to contemporary America, dramatically show a common link of values that bolster them with courage and dignity as they struggle to not only survive but prevail over their terrible problems.

Each senior is faced with a life-altering decision with their dilemmas involving beheadings and a confusion of loyalties in Parthia, Rome’s great rival; suffering the cruelty of the Inquisition in medieval Germany; escaping the clutches of Napoleonic intrigue as a reluctant “spy”; venturing on the dangerous journey west to California through Indian territory on a prairie schooner; the irony of elder abuse reversed; and an odd campaign of public service featuring “senior commandos.”



The stories of their tribulations and triumphs graphically show the strength and durability of the human spirit that defies age as well as time and geography.
