Despite their friendship, Phillip (Anders Danielsen Lie) and Erik (Espen Klouman-Høiner) are two competitive writers both determined to be successful. When they both send their manuscripts to the same publisher, Phillip's novel brings him overnight success in contrast to Erik's which is rejected.
The unfolding story relates the trials and tribulations of these two and their friends as they tackle life's ups and downs.
