It is summer in Rungsted. Line has been dating Victor for five years. She has the future ahead of her, but is stuck in her relationship with the paranoid Victor. Victor is from Rungsted. He passes time indulging in limit pushing “games” with his “friends”. The only rule in Victors “games” is that you are not allowed to help one another. Jesper is a wholesome unspoiled guy from Holbæk, who has come to Rungsted to look after a Beach side villa. As he studies to become a marine biologist, he considers it to be a free vacation and a good opportunity to finish his thesis, while he even has ideal surroundings for diving. One afternoon Jesper sees a girl fall overboard from one of the Marinas expensive boats, and he jumps in the water and saves her. The girls name is Line. Jesper is attracted to Line and still unaware of her relationship with Victor. The same evening they end up at a party together. Jesper meets Victor and his small “gang”, Frederik and Christian. Lines friend Louise likes Jesper, but he only sees Line. He succeeds to get her to spend the night with him. The next day he is surprised to find out that Line and Victor are about to get married.
