In July 2005, the World Masters Games hosted the first women's basketball team over the age of 65. To qualify for the Masters you just need to be in the right age bracket and "still breathing". That said, many former Olympians join, making the competition fierce. Enter "The Retreads", a team of Canadian women between the ages of 65 and 75. This documentary follows them as they train for the Games through to the final competitions where, alone in their category, they find they must play against three younger, stronger and faster teams.
