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 uncoordinated shoal of water divas and ensure that they will become Queens Of The Pool.

The screening on Wed 25 September at 11.15am is a Relaxed Screening – subtly adapted to create a welcoming environment for people with a range of conditions in the neuro-diverse community and for those who prefer a more relaxed cinema experience. All are welcome at these screenings, standard ticket prices apply.
