Go Grandriders

.

We follow 17 octogenarians on a scooter journey across Taiwan. The riders’ families and medical advisors express a cautious optimism regarding the dangerous-but-rewarding endeavor. Grandriders is a frank account of the implications of ageing in Taiwan–not just the obvious fact of mortality but also society’s changing conception of how the elderly are meant to behave. The captain who gets hospitalized early on is more upset about not fulfilling his responsibilities to his team than he is about his health. The stories of the riders show how the human spirit is often more resilient than the body it resides within.
