One Movie I Can't Seem to Watch Without Crying...

-A group of aliens come to Earth to retrieve some pods containing people they'd left behind from a previous trip. These cocoons have been in eternal peace at the bottom of the ocean. Once they are retrieved, they are placed at the bottom of an abandoned swimming pool, conveniently next to a retirement home in a small Florida town. Their mission to rescue these pods is held back by a group of elderly retirees who are using the pool and somehow discover that these aliens give the retirees energy and essentially help keep them young
