In IMAGINE SWIMMING, a group of seniors beat high waves. Despite their advanced age, they want to finally swim in a Leipzig swimming pool. The reasons for this are as varied as the students themselves. From the sailor to the housewife, everyone brings their own life story, fears and longings into the course. Together, they approach the task before them with joy and humor and prove that it is never too late to venture into the cold water.
