INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE Seniors from around the country hold back the hands of Father Time by taking on the elegant sport of synchronized swimming. Sue, Ellen, Cris, Luther, Monica, and Joyce find themselves pushing their physical boundaries in preparation for the annual U.S. Masters Artistic Swimming Championship. While some go for gold and others simply for a good time, this extraordinary group of elders reminds us that the spirit of competition doesn’t falter with old age. - Brandon Harrison
