Sieger (Gijs Blom) is on the tracking team and when they get two new members, they have good chances to qualify for the nationals. As they start training for the relay, Sieger finds himself drawn to team member Marc (Ko Zandvliet), who is unpredictable, exciting and warm. He’d much rather spend time with him than try to pick up girls with his best friend Stef (Stijn Taverne), although he does like Jessica (Lotte Razoux Schultz). And he’d definitely rather hang with Marc than try to soften things between his father (Ton Kas) and his brother Eddy (Jonas Smulders).
