Benedikt Ríkarðsson is not interested in power – he wants to listen to the people and change the country for the better. This takes the nation’s political establishment by storm, and his radical approach earns him the trust of the country and the position of prime minister.

What the nation does not know is that Benedikt is bipolar. So, when he stops taking his medication, his mania kicks in and his allies are forced to conceal his erratic behaviour from the public while others seek to abuse it.
