The over-60s in Vietnam

The story of a well-known fashionista and a street vendor in Vietnam, who would enlighten us that age doesn’t define who a person is.
A Documentary by Phuong H. Do
We are all ageing and getting older.
But, when we say old, does it mean when we reach a certain age, whether 60, 65, or 70? Or, is being “old” a state of mind?
In most countries, retirement age is the milestone after which someone becomes “elderly” or a “senior.” But, is this really fair?
While 60 has been defined as the starting of ‘old age’ in the Vietnamese Law, does being over 60 mean you are already old? And what does it actually mean to be aged over 60 in Vietnam today?
Watch the documentary below, and find out your own answer.
