The first feature film created by AARP Studios


From his humble beginnings parking cars at the Comedy Store, Jesus Trejo is relentless in his pursuit of stand-up stardom. For Jesus, who drives hours for a three-minute open mic stint, comedy is both a dream and an escape from the heavy demands of caring for his aging parents. Undeterred, Trejo funnels his experiences as a caregiver into disarmingly funny material for his stand-up routine. With tenderness and lots of humor, this heartwarming film sheds light on the increasingly common reality many adults face as their parents grow older.
