About

Sink Sank Sunk blends live portraits, a narrative storyline, and documentary-style footage to tell the story of Cooper, a reclusive young photographer with some unresolved mommy-issues.  Mitzi (Laura Linney) is a feeler of feelings with an insatiable appetite for life. Her son Cooper, is an introvert who lives a rather celibate life somewhere upstate. When Mitzi suddenly dies, Cooper returns to New York for her memorial and comes face-to-face with the finality of their antagonistic relationship.  He attempts to close the gap between them in her death, as he was unable to do during her life, by completing her latest passion project: a documentary about her synchronized swimming team. The documentary quickly shifts from focusing on the team to Mitzi, herself. Cooper learns about this woman who was his mother and encounters some unexpected truths about himself along the way. A slew of unusual teachers (most notably the members of her swimming team “The Rockettes!”) challenge Cooper’s guardedness and invite him into the realm of human connection.
