After four decades as a reporter, Lesley Stahl says the most vivid and transforming experience of her life was not covering the White House, interviewing heads of state, or any other of her stories at 60 Minutes. It was becoming a grandmother. She was hit with a jolt of joy so intense and unexpected, she wanted to "investigate" it—as though it was a news flash! And so, using her 60 Minutes skills, she explores how grandmothering changes a woman's life, interviewing her friends like Whoopi Goldberg, her colleagues like Diane Sawyer, and the proverbial woman next door.

Inspired by a true story, Rocky Holeczek is a uniquely vibrant man, who at the age of 107, is the oldest employed baker in Pittsburgh. His roommate is his grandson Michael, a 35-year-old surgeon whom he has raised since childhood -- and continues to guide into manhood. Their saga spans over 30 years, beginning when Rocky is 75 years old. During the course of their life together, Michael's world expands to include a wife, children, an overly attentive mother-in-law and a busy career in medicine. Through all the changes, one thing between them remains constant: Rocky's determination to stick around for as long as it takes to teach Michael what he needs to know about living.
