Description

Retirement: it's not just for the elderly.

Thirty-six-year-old JB lives to inspire the old folks at Whispering Pines Rest Home. He listens to their stories, encourages them to get some fresh air, and makes sure they aren't just sitting around waiting for the end to come.

But he's not a doctor, not a therapist. He's a resident of Whispering Pines, too.

When the finances for Whispering Pines hit the skids, the Home starts to earn the wrong kind of attention. And JB is left to confront the harsh reality of his past, and the reason he dropped out of life to retire three decades early. A reality he has been working hard to avoid since stepping foot inside Whispering Pines.

Sometimes life - and getting back to really living - requires some assistance.
