Struggling with career and marital problems, accountant Eric (Brydon) finds that friendship provides solace – and in a surprising form, as an all-male synchronised swimming team comes together. Can their coach Susan (Riley) whip this motley crew into shape, as they train for the world championships in Milan? Will they master ‘the flower’, ‘the pyramid’ and ‘the spinning circle’ in time? More importantly, can Eric win estranged wife Heather (Horrocks) back with the help of his newfound confidence? This gentle and engaging comedy features a fine British cast.
