Joerg, Guenther and Ulf, three swim-crazy gay men who do not want to swim straight ahead any longer. Of all sports, the trio has found the ultimate challenge in synchronized swimming and nothing can spoil their euphoria, their fantasy and their courage for self-irony. Their path is arduous; however they manage to gain an edge in the competition.
