The Curious Life of Bill Mont

While getting ready for a winter formal at Northwood, a senior living center in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Bill Mont - an 89-year-old self-made entrepreneur, reminisces about his life, including his most recent venture - sending people’s ashes to the moon. As he ruminates on love and loss, as well as his entrepreneurial projects and acquisitions, we experience what it’s like to live life to the fullest at 89.
