The Screen Guide

The lives and loves of veterans from Sydney's swing era. Once society's rebels, many of these musicians and dancers are now in their 70s and classed as senior citizens. Rather than acquiescing to the image of geriatrics, these older 'teenagers' are still out for a good time. The Shaw Nuff Swing Band has a regular Sunday afternoon gig at the Maroubra Bowling Club which attracts a loyal crowd. The crowd says this gig is 'our life. It's been like an injection into our heart and soul, how lucky we are to have this chance to relive our time again. It keeps us young and we love it.' Negotiating the ups and downs of health, romance and, horror of horrors, the loss of the gig, these swingers respond to life's challenges with vivacity, humanity and joy.
