A group of 30 senior citizens, the oldest of whom is 96, are preparing for the World Hip-Hop Dance Championship in Las Vegas. Their inspirational manager Billie Jordan is convinced that the trip to Vegas is a certainty. Wheelchairs and artificial hips are no excuse. The film concentrates on a few of the hip-hop seniors and about their pasts: one of them was a well-known peace activist. And about the present, which for some of them presents obstacles to the big trip: such as problems with dentures, a doctor who expressly forbids it. Others are more resolute. One thing’s for sure: the audience in Vegas will see something they’ve never seen before.
