„Unsyncable“ follows six athletes aged 63 to 82 as they prepare for the American Senior Synchronized Swimming Championships. One aims for gold, another knows she‘ll likely finish last, and others compete for the community and love of their team. They will all have to push physical, emotional, and societal boundaries to reach their goal. Together, they‘ve lost partners, suffered injuries, and dealt with age-related limitations. But despite it all, they keep swimming, and they do it with a smile. „I hope ‚Unsyncable‘ will inspire audiences to see aging in a different light - not as something to fear, but as something to pursue in our own unique ways, as we all ‚rage against the dying of our light‘ in our own way.“ (Megan Wennberg)
