Marc is shaken to the core when he meets a fellow police officer, Kay, on a trainingcourse and begins to develop feelings for him. When Kay asks to be transferred to Marc’s unit, his well-arranged life begins to sink into chaos. Torn between his love forhis pregnant girlfriend Bettina and the rush of a completely new experience, his life begins to spin increasingly out of control. He soon finds himself increasinglye stranged from his family, but running away with Kay is not an option. When Kay one day disappears without warning or leaving an address, it dawns on Marc that his absence has ripped a gaping hole in his life. With his life in free fall, Marc can no longer satisfy everyone's expectations - least of all his own.
