Synopsis:

On an intimate journey around the world, we discover what existence looks like from the perspective of those who have had more than ninety years of life. These stories of ordinary people who for almost a century have loved, laughed, sung and suffered, together make a symphony to life. With determination and humility, they declare to themselves and to the world, I am still here.

The elderly population of the world is growing significantly. But it is not only important to understand the social impact that this brings. What is less often noted is the relevance and value that their experience can bring to us as individuals and to humanity as a whole.

Synopsis:

Mexico City: built on a lake, yet dying of thirst.  Ironically the city does not suffer from a water shortage.  Generous seasonal rains that could quench the valley's thirst for most of the year are combined with sewage, making them a flooding risk rather than a solution to providing water for 22 million citizens.  This is an environmental case study: can this mega city mobilize its citizens to become water sustainable and ensure the future viability of the capital?
