In 100UP we meet a colourful collection of 100+ year-olds from different backgrounds and cultures, all of whom still enjoy life to the full.
100UP is a film which investigates the will to live. It portrays a colourful selection of 100+ year-old people from all over the world. With the clock continually ticking, these centenarians cling to life, set new goals with a joie de vivre, refusing to submit to the betrayal of their deteriorating bodies. They have overcome diseases, lost partners and often survived their own children. Nevertheless, these active, curious and creative centenarians are amazingly good at starting anew every day.
