After doing well at the national championships, the Pink Dragons are back to have a crack at the Auckland regionals in this feature-length documentary. Although the all-woman dragon boating team has a few veterans, many have never so much as touched a paddle. The Pink Dragons team is made up of breast cancer survivors, who use the sport to exercise and find a feeling of community after their recovery. Director Lisa Burd (documentary Let's Talk About Sex) follows the team as they head into training, and try to make their mark in the Auckland dragon boating scene.
Oh my god, that was the most exhilarating performance ever! Maybe better than sex...– A member of The Pink Dragons after a race
