‘Beyond Years’, A Short Animated Documentary About a Relationship With an Age Gap of 22 Years

“Beyond Years” is a short documentary animated by Freddy Arenas based on a recent “Modern Love” column at The New York Times written by photographer Tim McEown that examines the relationship between McEown and his now-wife Sarah, who is 22 years younger.

We had been completely blythe about the whole age difference thing, but this was something that spoke to the fact that we are in completely different circumstances in life in a lot of ways. And that’s going to be true the rest of our lives together.

Tim and Sarah’s difference was thrown into stark relief when he had a heart attack during their engagement.
