“An unashamedly French take on the challenges of 21st century masculinity... a good old-fashioned underdog-overcoming-the-odds tale told to perfection.”

A group of men in the throes of mid-life crises stare down ridicule and self-doubt when they form a local male synchronized swimming team and decide to compete at an international level. Under the guidance of the no-nonsense Delphine (Virginie Efira), a former champion with her own demons to quell, the ragtag group sets out on an unlikely adventure. 

Actor-turned-director Gilles Lellouche (C'est la vie) assembles an impressive cast of French talent including Mathieu Amalric (Venus in Fur), Jean Hughes Anglade (Queen Margot) and Guillaume Canet (Non-Fiction).
