Eric (Rob Brydon) is a 40-something stuck in a rut. With his marriage in tatters and his life generally going to pieces, he finds unexpected refuge in the company of a motley crew of middle-aged men, who meet up once a week at the local municipal pool to literally and figuratively tread water together.
Eric slowly realises that there’s strength in numbers, and that if this unlikely band of misfits can become a real team they might just have a shot at winning the Unofficial Male Synch-Swimming World Championships – and maybe even at turning their lives around.
A fantastic cast including Charlotte Riley and Jim Carter star in this feel-good comedy from BAFTA nominee Oliver Parker.
