Summary of the episode:

Pierre had the habit of hiding to cry. Every day, or almost. Since the start of the school year, in his fifth grade, he has become the laughingstock of his classmates who invite him to stay with girls rather than boys, on the pretext that he practices synchronized swimming.

Very reassembled by learning it, his parents, Laurent and Eliane, contact the school to inform of the situation. A few weeks later, the release of Gilles Lellouche's movie "Le Grand Bain" at the cinema makes them want to go even further. In January, a 100% male synchronized swimming team is born to break down prejudices.
