Norway, 2013, 90'
Swiss premiere at Visions du Réel 2014 in the Grand Angle section
For 40 years, 98-year-old Goro has been training every week with other elderly ladies in a volleyball team called The Optimists. This Norwegian team has not played a match for 30 years. It is time for them to face a worthy opponent. But only a team of Swedish gentlemen seems to be ready to accept the challenge. Who will win? This refreshing comedy is a therapy against the fear of aging.
