The year is 1720. The war is over, and vice admiral Tordenskiold doesnt know what to do with his life. Should he get married and settle down? His valet Kold persuades him to go on a courting expedition. The journey turns into a wild road movie through Denmark and Germany. Wherever they go, Tordenskiold has to relate his favourite story: the battle of Dynekilen. The women sigh, and Tordenskiold seduces them all, one by one. He is the rock star of his time, but the problems are piling up.

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 road trip through Denmark and northern Germany.
