A Bright Second considers the ubiquitous problem of ageism in the most appropriate setting possible: the Sunshine State. This ode to Florida examines the paradox of living in the age of SnapChat and the age of nostalgia--a time when seniors are living longer than ever and young people are avoiding adulthood more avidly than ever.

An unlikely pair (Cecilia, 30’s, and Dot, 70’s) explores the nooks and crannies of Florida’s artistic and quirky underbelly. This singular friendship between two kindred spirits separated by nearly 50 years illuminates the nuances of age, nostalgia, body image and bonds between women.
