Aged to Perfection (2010)
Gold watches in hand, boomers and older are shuffling off to the rocking chair on the porch in their cardigans, right? Hardly!
Jaring Timmerman is 100 years old, yet he’s still sharp as a tack and swims competitively – and continues to set world records. He’s seen World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, the breakup of the Soviet Union, and all points in between and since. And he keeps going. How does he do it? And for the rest of us, what lessons can we take from his story?
Aged to Perfection takes us into the life of this everyday underdog. We get to know him, to understand what he is striving for, and why it matters. We share triumphs and failures, but always courage – a courage that can’t be measured.
Retirement? That’s for old people.
