Widower Jim lives in Penge and is content with his daily routine. His sister Sharon, however, is determined to sort out his love life by sending him on frequent, and mostly calamitous, blind dates much to the amusement of the regulars at the local pub. When Jim meets Tilly on one of these blind dates things look up and he finds a whole new bunch of friends at the local swimming pool. But trouble brews when a competitive synchronised swimming group is given carte blanche to use the pool, ousting Jim and his new friends. Should they give in and go elsewhere or play them at their own game? Can Jim really enter the unlikely world of synchronised swimming and how will that help his burgeoning romance with Tilly?
