This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

A disparate group of 40-somethings – all in the throes of mid-life crises – form a local swimming pool’s inaugural, males-only synchronised swimming team. Staring down ongoing ridicule and contempt from all angles, they engage a fallen champion, Delphine (Virginie Efira, In Bed With Victoria, AF FFF2017; An Impossible Love and Keep Going at this year’s Festival) as their coach, supported by her tough-as-nails former swim partner, Amanda (Leïla Bekhti, A Man in a Hurry at this year’s Festival). Unwittingly, the team members embark on an unlikely journey of redemption that sees each one of them rebuild some sense of their self-worth.
