Cyber-Seniors follows a group of initially reluctant older adults as they discover the wonders of the Internet with the help of teenage mentors. Their adventure jumps to a whole new level when 89-year-old Shura decides to create a YouTube cooking tutorial, which inspires a lively competition where hidden talents and competitive spirits are revealed. The film provides insight into the wonderful things that happen when generation gaps are bridged and new ways of connecting are explored. WATCH TRAILER
