Documentário de 90 minutos sobre a interpretação que o efeito da passagem linear do tempo exerce na vida do artista e de como ele interpreta os efeitos de sua infuência na vida artística e pessoal. A partir de depoimentos colhidos entre os moradores do Retiro dos Artistas, o filme retrata a passagem do tempo na vida pessoal e profissional de indivíduos classificados como representantes da "terceira idade". Suas aflições, memórias, expectativas e a forma como enxergam os efeitos da passagem do tempo em suas vidas e obras servem para ilustrar os efeitos cronológicos do tempo em suas trajetórias. Através de seus depoimentos, podemos vislumbrar os pontos altos, baixos e a perenidade de como a passagem do tempo pode, ao mesmo tempo, aperfeiçoar e limitar o exercício da profissão desses indivíduos. O tempo, em sua plenitude poética, física e existencial é escrutinado e interpretado pelos artistas ao mesmo tempo em que as consequências dessa jornada são evidenciadas em seus depoimentos.
