New Dawn, A
A NEW DAWN
Is it possible to bridge the gap between two generations by letting them live together?
Nursing home Tuindorp Oost in the Dutch city of Utrecht can be mistaken for death’s waiting room: everything moves slowly, the elderly participate in orchestrated activities and the rhythm of existence is determined by the strict schedule of pill intakes. However, peace and tranquillity will soon be disrupted as 41 young people will move into the vacant rooms of the place. A social experiment. The aim; bringing two generations together.
