What are the universal characteristics we humans share? Robbie Hart and Luc Côté explore this intriguing question as they meet again with five people they originally interviewed 16 years ago for the television series Turning 16. Living in Jamaica, Brazil, Thailand, Niger and India, the five men and women recount the events that have marked their lives, revisit their past dreams and talk about their aspirations today. Turning 32 transcends borders by offering a compassionate look at the journey to adulthood around the world. Topics addressed include progress, faith, exploitation, political conflict, love, rites of passage, and, especially, the important role of family. Turning 32 is a cinematic journey. An ode to life, with all its joys and sorrows, cycles and hurdles.
