Competence is not exactly a high priority at Dirk's small security company Safety First. Nor is success. That's why the chaotic nerd is overjoyed when Safety First wins the contract to provide security for the famous Belgian electro music festival Tomorrowland. Dirk and his 3-man team get to look after the artists, brilliant! The security crew go to work with abandon. But things quickly go wrong. Dirk's employee Smos mainly uses the proximity to his idols to push his own music. And Dirk suddenly has feelings -- for a man. In Dirk's world, being gay is a non-starter, but what do you do if the feelings won't go away? A turbulent, outrageous comedy is the cinematic climax of a highly successful Belgian TV series.
