Danish defense minister Henrik Skelbæk would be exposed as an utter coward hadn't his PET bodyguards pulled him trough a 'scary' New Year visit to the troops in Iraq. In order to phone his mistress, the adulterous politician breaks safety rules, costing valiant young bodyguard Ibro Catic his life. Like every year, 20 of the best police academy recruits are admitted to PET's elite training selection process. The hero's father Drazen Catic, a traumatized Bosnian refugee, fails to attend the funeral, which worries the brass. Indeed he followed the minister, seeing he's 'playing' with an opposition adviser.
