In 1964 fourteen children were interviewed for the documentary, 7 Up. All of these children were seven years old and from completely different backgrounds. The basic premise was to examine the Jesuit theory, "Give me a child until he is 7, and I will show you the man." Is a person's fate sealed at birth? Every seven years after that acclaimed director Michael Apted returned to those children to chart their progress through life. In so doing, Apted has created the longest running real-life documentary ever made.

The fifth of a series of documentary films that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. The children were selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child's social class predetermines their future. Director Michael Apted returns twenty-eight years on as the subjects, now aged thirty-five, talk about their lives and their hopes for the future.
