The Grand Plan
A conversation about gender, loneliness, attraction, sex and ageing.
Produced by Brit Jensen for Czech Radio (February 2016)

Claire lives in her house on an island in Canada. She’s 87 years old and searching for love. A couple of years ago, she signed up to a dating agency. But there’s one problem – there are no men. Or as Claire puts it, ‘The men are either sick or dead.’

Claire writes a column in the newspaper about her loneliness and hopeless search for a relationship. By chance, Brit comes across it and an idea begins to take form. In fact it’s not just an idea but a grand plan about how Claire may finally find love.
