STOP YOUR LIFE AND START LIVING

Valencia is the story of a group of senior citizens who live in a senior center located in the South Bronx.  Things are going well for Victor “Tio” Valdes and the rest of the seniors until the Director, Andrea Fernandes announces that Valencia will be closing due to a lack of funding and that they need half a million dollars to remain open.  Tio and the seniors brainstorm ideas to raise money to keep Valencia open.  The seniors decide to host a telethon to raise the funds necessary. Throughout the process they show their passion and zest for life.
