Matthias Le Goff, an Olympic champion at the end of his career, makes a homophobic statement on TV. His punishment: coach the Shiny Shrimps, a flamboyant and amateur gay 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. It’s a combination of ‘YMCA’ (Village People) and ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’... in swimming suits!

This is clearly a crowd pleaser, the actors are really endearing, and the film is full of wacky and hilarious replies, even if the jokes are not always very subtle. This is based upon a real event, unbelievably! (Subtitles)
