A major hit in France, Sink or Swim follows a small group of variously troubled men who find purpose and solace in forming an unlikely all-male synchronised swimming team, coached by an acerbic former champion who is as lost as they are. Undeterred by their lack of fitness, the men push on with their training schedule, and – in the face of scepticism and ridicule from all quarters – set their sights on the World Championships in Norway. On the way they rediscover a little self-esteem and learn a lot about themselves and about each other. Charming, hilarious and full of heart, this film has been described as ‘The Pool Monty’.
