Precedes Mondays at Racine.

In the 1970s and 80s, hundreds of thousands of senior citizens migrated from New York City to Kings Point, a typical retirement community, located just outside West Palm Beach, Florida. Lured by blue skies, sunshine, palm trees, and the promise of a rich social life, they bought their way to paradise for just a $1,500 down payment. Now, as an aging community faces its own mortality, paradise has begun to exact a higher price. Through the experiences of six longtime residents, Kings Point captures both the allure and the darker complexities of living in a world where 'nobody gets too close. Poignant, funny and dark, Kings Point is a deeply empathetic portrait of the last act of the American Dream.
