92 year old Ruth Young, clad in newspaper shin guards and a paisley headscarf, begins to contemplate her inevitable death, but she has no intention of slowing down. Accompanied by her jolly 53 year old companion David Maitz, Ruth mows her lawn with a bread knife, visits The Philadelphia Mint to learn how pennies are made, and makes a heartwarming pilgrimage to her family’s cemetery plot where she and Dave will eventually rest.
