MARKING THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF STONEWALL
Hailed as the new The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert, The Shiny Shrimps is the story of Matthias Le Goff, an Olympic champion at the end of his career, who makes a homophobic statement on TV. His punishment for doing so is to coach the Shiny Shrimps, a flamboyant and amateur gay water-polo team.
