When Olympic swimming champion Matthias is caught on camera making a homophobic comment, it threatens to be the end of his career - unless he makes amends. Too ambitious to give up on future glory in the pool, Matthias reluctantly agrees to his Federation’s demands that he coach the Shiny Shrimps, a flamboyantly gay amateur water polo team. They 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... Faster, Higher, Stronger.

“... Shiny Shrimps has clicked with French audiences hungry for something fizzy and light...”
