The coach of the French team of mentally deficient basketball players finds a surprising solution after his best players have just dropped him at the dawn of the Paralympic Games!
The true story of the most improbable sports fraud of the 21st century: in order not to lose the subsidy of his federation, a coach brings together a basketball team of mentally disabled people to participate in the Sydney Paralympic Games in 2000. Seven disillusioned unemployed men accompanied by two players with actual disabilities, the unlikely team that flies to Australia. The impostors will have to blend in with other disabled athletes but also share their room and dressing room with them. Their cynicism and arrogance will then be confronted with passion and bettering themselves. Beyond this scandalous and grotesque story, it is the human adventure that will prove to be the most beautiful and make prejudices waver. They were ready for anything except discovering the world of disability.
