Third Act is a film about aging. Leo is 80 years old and tours the world with the internationally renowned dance-theatre company Peeping Tom. On stage he's condamned to an elderly home crowded by local extra's in their 'third age'. But in real life, his wife waits for him... in an elderly home in Belgium.
