The documentary charts the development, building and grand opening of Triangle Square in Hollywood, California, the nation's first affordable housing complex specifically designed for gay and lesbian senior citizens. It also reveals what it's like for gay men and women over the age of 55 by spotlighting the lives of several Triangle Square hopeful's that have entered a lottery and are hoping to win a spot in the unique housing complex.

"There is a housing crisis for gay and lesbian seniors in this country," says Munro. "It was an honor working with Carolyn to bring this issue to light. All too often gays and lesbians over the 55 feel invisible. This documentary changes that." A Place To Live won the audience award at this year's Outfest.
