In a sweet and poignant drama that respectfully confronts the subject of aging in America, Old Henry is a special television event produced by INSP and its short form subsidiary, Moments.org.
Henry (Ralph Waite, The Waltons) is a man in his 80s dealing with the challenges of aging in a society that has moved on without him. When he makes a new friend in Jessica (Rachel Hendrix, October Baby), a woman in her 20s who shows him a respect and honor absent from the world around him, Henry finds a new perspective on life, and in turn becomes an inspiration to Jessica.
