 “The combination of being gay, francophone in Ontario and aging wasn’t something I thought much about, but now that I am almost 60, it is something I am confronted  with.” - Jean-Rock Boutin, FrancoQueer, a francophone association for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered (LGBT) in Ontario.

This documentary follows Jean-Rock Boutin in a mission to discover the realities and difficulties faced by LGBT seniors in the province. According to Boutin, it would be a disappointment if, after all the progress made within the community to flourish in French, that once they become seniors, the members are obliged to live their final years in stress. Do they have to return back in the closet in order to protect an identity they cherish so dearly? Boutin travels throughout the province, meeting seniors, experts and caregivers on aging to see firsthand what services are available if you are an LGBT French-speaking senior.
