Lovebirds is an intimate portrait of four men and women in their 70s and their budding romantic relationships. These Quebec snowbirds migrate to Florida every year looking for sun, heat, and companionship. Behind their quest for love is the desire to savour the joys of the second—and last—youth that comes with retirement. Lovebirds depicts with bittersweet humor the trials and tribulations of their relationships and ultimately reveals their great need for love, as these old lovers all cherish the hope of finding someone with whom to share the rest of their days.
