A new AOA project with a new cast began in February 2020. Due to Covid
the project moved online and became a remarkable opportunity to document
the pandemic in real time from inside one of the most vulnerable populations,
retirement communities. Four of the eight cast members are pictured above.
"I've learned that life can change in the blink of an eye. You are truly just guaranteed today,
maybe even just this moment."
Cast member Cheri Furr
