A general election has been called in Denmark. The new leader of the centrist Moderate Party, 40-year-old Birgitte Nyborg Christensen, has quickly gained great popularity among the electorate thanks to her natural manner and sincere humanism. However, Birgitte is under pressure, as her party has not yet declared its support for either of the two obvious candidates for prime minister. Birgitte's campaign is under the firm control of her intelligent, but somewhat cynical, 30-year-old media adviser, Kasper Juul. He is a master of the interface between politics and the media, and exploits his connections. In particular, his connection with the young TV presenter Katrine Fønsmark, with whom he had a relationship three years ago. Katrine is the new face at TV1; she is talented and hard-working, and, like Kasper, she understands how to make use of her connections at "the Castle", as the parliament is known.
