TV series in ten episodes about the ambitious Birgitte Nyborg, who gains an unforeseen electoral victory for her party. But political power is often acquired at the expense of personal sacrifices. Will her marriage and family life survive her political career and will she stay true to her principles? The award-winning series concentrates on the effects the power struggle has on the forty-year-old Nyborg and the people around her, like the cynical spin doctor Kasper Juul and the political journalist Katrine Fonsmark.
