Official Trailer

A group of 40-something men, all on the verge of a mid-life crisis, decide to form a synchronized swim team. Braving ridicule, the men pursue their goal and the challenge of representing France at the Men’s World Championships. Their somewhat slow-paced training changes radically when a new coach arrives on the scene to whip them into shape. In the process they find meaning in their lives.
