Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships
Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage, the “Sweet Delilah” on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other’s lives
As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends, proving the enduring power of “teamwork” rally ’round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction.
The Sweet Delilah Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women - a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever…
