Follows three friends through their many years of intensive training to become fighter pilots with the Royal Netherlands Air Force and as they graduate and carry out a dangerous mission in the Middle East.


The team is repatriated from Arizoan to attend crashed Dennis’s funeral. Rutger planned some time off alone, but Guus’ father, general Roderick Walema, Commander of the Dutch Armed Forces, takes them all to a champagne reception on the fancy family estate, where daughter Paula flirts with Ruther but Guus can barely control his bitter memories, always having been in the shadow of his domineering father and late brother. Rutger panics when journalist Julia Hofstee calls to ask his view on the dark family past, having interviewed his estranged sister Melanie de Man.
