Welcome to Florida’s Friendliest Hometown. The Bubble explores senior citizen life within The Villages, America’s largest retirement community; a 32-square mile, sun-drenched, beautifully maintained, gated Floridian paradise housing over 150,000 retirees. Retired life beneath the year-round Floridian sunshine, however, is not perhaps as idyllic, or as welcomed, as many ageing Villagers and viewers may imagine. The Bubble offers viewers an engaging, provocative yet compassionate contemplation of American ways of life, ageing, and death.
