Three weeks before general elections, the leader of one of the country's largest parties, is involved in a bad car accident that causes the political scene to veer of course as it is thrown into confusion.
Ulrik Torp, a young, ambitious journalist becomes embroiled in a ruthless power struggle between the party's two successors to leadership.
Media speculation and calculated lies fuel the controversy at great personal cost to many of the people involved. A cynical plot is uncovered that may involve the incumbent Prime Minister, and Ulrik is obsessed with learning the truth.
