Four seniors in Owen Sound Ontario meet on the phone to check in, chat, help each other out, have some laughs and sometimes sing. In St. John's Newfoundland, a pianist makes music with men twice his age at a veterans' retirement home - some can hardly speak but can still sing. Part 2 "Ce n'est pas la vie en rose"; in a nursing home near Montreal, Monsieur Potvin walks the halls with his accordian playing music which the residents remember from their youth. It gives comfort, pleasure and once brought an old lady out of a coma.
