Nike brings us this short documentary where we meet the Hoops Abuelas, or Hoops Grandmas, Mexico’s oldest basketball team.
The team is made up of various women who are all 60+. They’ve been playing basketball for decades and won’t let a silly thing like old age get in their way. We get to meet each of the team members in this moving doc and learn how the sport allows them to still live their lives to the fullest.
Aside from physical issues, one of the hardest things that older people have to deal with is loneliness. For these women, the friendships that they’ve formed by being a part of the team are vitally important. We meet one of the team members who can no longer play due to issues with her mobility. But the rest of the gang don’t leave her behind and support her emotionally through a tough time in her life. It’s an inspiring and touching doc that shows us that you can still make the most of your life in old age.
