The average age of the employees at the Vita Needle Company, a needle and tubing factory near Boston, is an amazing 73 years. Anyone who can make it up the front steps gets hired.

In their interviews, in a touching and endearing way, the elderly workers at the needle factory reveal their newfound sense of self-confidence. Full of joy and vitality, they describe how happy they are in their community, and also talk about the dream they all share: to be able to climb up the steps leading to the production hall for as long as possible!
