"Sophie, you can go home now and enjoy your old age," her boss announces as the confetti settles at the retirement party. "Old age? Old age? I have too many things to do to be old," Sophie retorts and sets out to investigate other possibilities. Lighthearted and colourful, Second Début offers a positive outlook on retirement. Designed for viewers who are either retired or close to retirement, this animation film will appeal to those who anticipate doing something inventive and constructive with their new leisure time.
