Sink or Swim

A Feature film by Gilles Lellouche

Produced by Trésor Films (ex Les Productions du Trésor), Chi-Fou-Mi Productions

Release in France : 24/10/2018


    A group of 40-something guys, all on the verge of a mid-life crisis, decide to form their local pool’s first ever synchronized swimming team – for men. Braving the skepticism and ridicule of those around them, and trained by a fallen champion trying to pull herself together, the group set out on an unlikely adventure, and on the way will rediscover a little self-esteem and a lot about themselves and each other.
