Plot summary

A comedy drama about two brothers whose lives become very complicated. Jens’s wife Tessan refuses to believe that his friendship with stunning Johanna is purely platonic and throws him out. Jens confides in his brother Pontus who is very surprised to learn that Jens has been seeing one of his old girlfriends. When Jens discovers that it is Tessan who has cheated on him he moves to Pontus’s place. But life with Pontus is getting chaotic when Pontus realizes that he is again having feelings for Johanna, at the same time as his former wife wants him to father another child. Now the brothers live together, and every other week they have all four children come to stay. In between there is the small matter of wives, ex-wives and girlfriends to unscramble, not to mention a career going rapidly down the toilet.
