Matthias (Nicolas Gob, Netflix’s The Chalet), an Olympic swimming champion at the end of his career, makes a homophobic statement on TV. His punishment: coach the Shiny Shrimps, a flamboyant, amateur gay water polo team. Matthias wants to get out of this community service and relaunch his career by qualifying for the French national swimming team, while the Shiny Shrimps have only one thing in mind: to qualify for the Gay Games in Croatia where the hottest international LGBT athletes compete. It’s the start of a bumpy and joyful ride!

In French with English subtitles.
