Who said your grandmother couldn't be a hip hop star?
These senior citizens may each be almost a century young, but for Kara, (94) Maynie, (95) and Terri, (93) the journey to Las Vegas and the World Hip Hop Dance Championships is just the beginning of a life's journey. Along with twenty-four other nonagenarians they defy the odds and hip-hop their way into the hearts and minds of thousands of young fans from around the world.
Hip Hop-eration follows a troupe of courageous, yet cheeky, senior citizens on an extraordinary quest to perform at the World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas. Hip Hop-eration is a poetic feel-good documentary film that proves age has no limits and that hip hop can set you free. It is an inspirational self-help journey for anyone fearful of growing old.
