Several 40-something guys, all on the verge of a mid-life crisis, decide to form their local pool's first synchronized swimming team -- for men. Middle-aged Bertrand finds that all the men are like him - misfits - in one way or another, largely middle aged, out of shape and dealing with one issue in their life or another which most wear openly on their sleeves. Despite only managing to be mediocre as a team, they will either figuratively sink or swim both as a team and as individuals in dealing with their respective issues.  They discover that there is a Men's Synchronized Swimming World Championship upcoming in Norway and decide to enter representing France.
