Olympic swimming champion Matthias Le Goff is overshadowed by younger rivals and, during a testy exchange with a TV reporter, he issues a homophobic slur. The national swimming federation forces Matthias to atone by coaching a gay water polo team, the Shiny Shrimps, who are hoping to qualify for a berth at the forthcoming Gay Games. While the polo team's founder, restaurant owner Jean, welcomes Matthias with open arms, other members are less forgiving.
