Mick and Fred have been friends lifelong friends, now both reaching their more senior years they find themselves wanting very different things in their immediate life. Fred's daughter Lena feels her dad is in need of a health check and some R&R so she books them into a luxury spa in the beautiful Swiss mountains.

Whilst Mick feels the pressure to finish his latest screenplay, Fred on the other hand, much to his daughters dismay, has no desire to return to his career scoring and conducting music. Whilst visiting the retreat, both men meet many interesting characters and find themselves in a retrospective mood only to be rejuvenated by the experience in more than one way.

The film score features contributions by many celebrated artists but perhaps the most poignant from Mark Kozelek AKA Sun Kil Moon, Kozelek also makes a cameo appearance in the film. Paloma Faith also has a song on the film and makes a cameo. Youth will open in US cinemas December 4, 2015
