Water polo team THE SHINY SHRIMPS have little hope of achieving their goal to compete in the world’s biggest LGBTQ+ sporting event, the Gay Games. Their undisciplined behaviour (in and out of the pool) has team captain Jean searching for a new coach to whip the shrimps into shape. He arrives in the form of World Silver Medalist swimmer Matthias Le Goff who, after making a homophobic remark on live TV, is offered redemption by means of training and reigning in the flamboyant Shrimps.

The Shiny Shrimps, however, have other ideas. They prefer partying to serious practice and so, Matthias is forced to reconsider his professional and personal priorities. Should he quit for selfish reasons or hit the road to Croatia with this unco-ordinated shoal of water divas and ensure that THE SHINY SHRIMPS will become Queens Of  The Pool.
