Kristoffer is 24 years old and carefree. When his girlfriend Elisabeth dumps him for her boss, his life falls to pieces. By coincidence some of Kristoffer's video diaries end up with the producer of the popular talk show Karsten Tonight. A few weeks later his life has become TV entertainment. People love the sequences from his commune at Troyen: his half-twisted view of his surroundings, his crazy best friend Geir, not to mention the weird web designer Stig Inge, who hasn't set foot outside the Toyen shopping center for two years. But revealing your life on national television comes with a price tag. As Kristoffer's future in the TV business starts looking better and better, his friends start suffering. Geir's big secret is revealed, and Stig Inge's personal problems are much more serious than Kristoffer first thought. It will cost him a great deal to win his friends back. Will he have enough guts to follow his heart?
