To make matters worse, Caroline is also the girlfriend of Jørgen's brother, the pilot Tom. While denying and suppressing his new and very confusing feelings, Jacob and Caroline are getting more involved in their secret affair. Slowly though Jørgen and their friends are getting more suspicious about the relationship.
