In this documentary we meet 15 ladies ranging from 66 to 98 years in age from the Norwegian town of Hamar.  They have been playing volleyball for 30 years and are about to have their first match, against Swedish male pensioners in Sollentuna.  The film is photographed by the daughter of one of the pensioners and is a heartwarming and quite funny feel good film about pensioners in the autumn of their lives.  It follows the ladies on and off the course, while preparing for the big match, with lots of laughter and companionship.
