Forty at forty@2x


Faced with turning 40, middle-of-the-road filmmaker and newly-single mother-of-one Rachel Tracy decides to turn her impending professional, personal and punctuational crises into creativity. The plan? To go in search of 39 women who, like her, will hit the big 4-0 on 27 April 2022. And to ask:

Are you happy with where you’re at?
Where would you rather be?
And where did I go wrong?!

Who will she meet? And how will they react to a woman they’ve not met before, turning up and asking them personal questions?

Hilariously funny, brutally honest and wonderfully uplifting; this film will explore hopes, dreams, success, self-doubt, failure, rejection and all that other stuff that any self-respecting documentary would.

How you can help

This film needs to be cast, filmed and financed. Ha! If you would like to be kept up-to-date with ways in which you can get involved, please email 'Forty at Forty' to Thanks.
