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 on North Carolina's Outer
Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and
spans a period of thirty-three years. Sheree, the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized
and 'perfect' life, and continues to be the group's leader. Dinah, the wise-cracking overachiever, is a career dynamo.
But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life. Lexie, pampered and
outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married
- over and
over and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her
life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal experiences a late entry
into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. 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 in the second act,
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 Dixie Swim Club' is the story of these five unforgettable
women - a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
