Age Ain't Nothin but a Number
"Age Ain't Nothin but a Number" is a true retelling of romance, drama, and heartbreak, adapted from the autobiographical novel of the same title by author Yetta Yvette. This powerful love story proves that we never know who we'll fall in love with, even if it's taboo, and how true love can change your life forever! This inspiring truth that you should NEVER give up on life and love is told faithfully and lovingly through Yetta's ruminations.
Yetta Yvette is a beautiful, intelligent, African American college student trying to earn her way through school. After being hired at a small trucking company run by "Mister" Dexter Gooding, a married man thirty years her senior, Yetta discovers they share a strong connection through his mentorship. One night after a late business dinner, they cross the line between professional and personal, and Yetta struggles to keep the relationship platonic. As time passes, Yetta gives in to her longing heart and they fall deeply in love, transcending their significant age difference. But, just as life pushes you up, it also pulls you down, and tragedy leaves Yetta heartbroken and alone, picking up the pieces.
ABOUT THE WRITER
Writer: Yetta Yvette
Yetta Yvette is an Author, Screenwriter, Poet, Entrepreneur, Licensed Cosmetologist and Model, originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. She migrated to California as a young child and later attended Hollywood High Performing Arts School where the art of beautification caught her interest. Yetta studied Cosmetology at Flavio Beauty College after high school, and proudly passed her licensure exam in 1994. Aside from her successful career as a Licensed Cosmetologist and model, Yetta has also indulged in writing. She was always a confident and strong writer in her college years and took English classes specifically to hone her craft. Yetta particularly loves writing stories “based on” or “inspired by” true events, where people were challenged and had to overcome their obstacles in life. Her debut novel, which she adapted for this film, is her autobiography titled Age Ain't Nothing but a Number, first published in December of 2014. As a non-fiction writer, Yetta believes that books are not about their words, but rather the quality of the message that will impact the reader’s life, especially when that message is based on historical lessons learned.
