Martha, a woman who is slowly dying of cancer, decides to forego cancer treatment and move to a retirement community to simplify her life in preparation for her death. Martha checks in and meets the "welcoming committee" including the supervisor of the community, who gives Martha a tour and explains that every resident must belong to one of the community's clubs. That night, Martha tries to sleep but is unable to due to the loud noise coming from her neighbor, Sheryl's house. Martha calls the community deputy to stop the noise. Sheryl and her party sneak into Martha's house to evade the deputy. After a brief conversation, Sheryl convinces a very annoyed Martha to let her party take cover there. From that night on, Sheryl becomes very interested in becoming Martha's friend, inviting her to various meet and greets, which Martha ignores. After a little while, Martha gives in and she and Sheryl get to know each other better. Sheryl learns that when Martha was young she was a cheerleader but quit before her first game to take care of her ill mother. Sheryl convinces Martha to start a cheerleading squad with her fellow residents, as the supervisor said that it was ok to start a club. Sheryl and Martha hold tryouts for the squad and pick several enthusiastic members to complete the minimum requirement of eight club members. The cheerleading club illustrates the point that it is never too late to follow your dreams.
