Magnus lives in a disconcerting world, where empty words can kill. A world where people expose each other on social media and judge one another through an app. The most unpopular ones are punished by the court of public opinion, and there is no requirement for evidence. It's the Fifth Estate that governs the course of events in Denmark, and Magnus is desperately trying to keep a low profile so he doesn't end up like his father, who was sentenced to death.


However, on a fateful day, things go wrong after an unfortunate incident at Magnus's high school. His best friend Astrid does her best to cheer him up, but it doesn't prevent the hammer of public opinion from falling. Normally, Magnus would receive his punishment, but instead, he is selected for the TV show "Damocles' Angels," where he gets the chance to win redemption and get his life back. To succeed, he must be the most beloved of the sixteen participants in the eyes of the viewers, but it won't be easy in a program filled with challenges designed to test his morals and conscience. Punishment awaits on the other side if he fails.
