A twinkly inspirational documentary about eight competitors in the World Over-80 Table Tennis Championships in Inner Mongolia. The ping-pongers are all in their 80s and 90s; one Australian woman is a centurion. Most of the players have been athletes all their lives, but one German woman only took the sport up as an octogenarian after suffering a stroke. The sport seems to have re-energized her. The film shows that the advanced masters scene is like those in other sports, with rivalries, egomania and even dirty tricks -- like stealing an opponent's bat. Losing doesn't get any less painful with age.
