The Great Northern War is over and Vice Admiral Tordenskjold, hero of the victorious Danish-Norwegian fleet, has no clue what to do with his life. His valet Kold persuades him to go on a vacation, arguing that now is the time to marry and settle down. The trip turns into a fun and freewheeling journey through Denmark and northern Germany. Women swoon at the sight of the attractive young man – he is a 1720s version of a modern day rock star. Dark clouds gradually appear on the horizon, however, and in Hanover, the increasingly alarmed Tordenskiold is forced into a suspicious duel by a former Swedish archenemy seemingly bent on revenge.
