This clay animation about the transportation needs of two old men not only evokes reminiscences of the fumbling cult figures Buurman & Buurman. From the front page of the newspaper, that other famous clay duo, Wallace and Gromit, smiles at us. This sets the tone for the adventure of the aged man and his Gerontomatic, the 'most modern means of transportation for sixty plus years'. But despite this Segway for the elderly, his life runs far from smoothly.
