WATERVILLE — Spectrum Generations will present the award winning documentary “Nine to Ninety” from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Monday, April 11, at the Muskie Center.

“Nine to Ninety” is the love story of Phyllis and Joe Sabatini, who at age 89 and 90 live in the home of their daughter and son-in-law, where they relish time with their young granddaughter Jacqueline. As the family struggles to make ends meet and the grandparents’ health problems escalate, Phyllis becomes determined to free her daughter from the burden of caring for everyone from 9 to 90.

When Phyllis makes a difficult decision to move 3,000 miles away to live with their other daughter, she faces parting from Joe, her husband of 62 years. Phyllis’ choice ignites bigger conversations about when the best way to say ‘I love you’ is to say ‘goodbye’ and how to age with dignity. A community conversation with the center’s caregiving experts will follow.
