- Meet the Keller family, five generations of firstborn women -- an unbroken line of daughters -- living together in the same house on a secluded olive grove in the Sacramento Valley of Northern California. Though they lead ordinary lives, there is an element of the extraordinary to these women: the eldest two are defying longevity norms. Their unusual lifespans have caught the attention of a geneticist who believes they hold the key to breakthroughs that will revolutionize the aging process for everyone. But Anna, the 112 year old family matriach, is not interested in unlocking secrets the Keller blood holds. She believes there are some truths that must stay hidden, including certain knowledge about her origins that she has carried for more than a century.
