Our three couples – Hans (79) & Edith (76), Ellen (84) & Horst (77), Ralf & Kristin (both 73) – have two things in common: After being together for 3, 16, and 51 years they are all still heavily in love. And every Monday, they attend DJ Michael Borge's senior's disco in Berlin Steglitz to get down on the dancefloor and prove that love, passion, and a lust for life are never getting old.
The truth is that it doesn't matter, if you are 18 or 81 – Love is all.

Fifty years ago, a civil rights march began in Selma, Alabama. Nearly 600 people intended to walk to the state capitol in Montgomery, led by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, where they would demand to speak with then-Gov. George Wallace about the death of Jimmie Lee Jackson, a 26-year-old who was shot by police the previous month.
