Granny's Got Game is a documentary film about a senior women's basketball team in North Carolina. These seven fiercely competitive women in their seventies battle physical limitations and skepticism to keep doing what they love.  The film follows them for a year as they compete for another National Senior Games championship.  After two decades together, these women are more than a team...they are a family.
