OFFICIAL SELECTION 2008 SLAMDANCE FILM FESTIVAL




Dive into the world of elite synchronized swimming as dedicated young women compete for spots on the U.S. Synchronized Swimming team and train relentlessly in pursuit of an Olympic medal. Sync or Swim profiles hard-working athletes on a moving journey to fulfill their Olympic dreams. Day after day, these 9 swimmers hone their skills and perfect the split-second timing of their precisely choreographed routines in preparation to face their Olympic competitors. In the midst of their training, they must pull together to support a teammate who attempts to recover from an unthinkable tragedy. Juxtaposing scenes that are intense and emotional, uplifting and mesmerizing, humorous and heart breaking, Sync or Swim offers a candid, intimate look at this misunderstood sport that is so much more than sequins and smiles.
