    • XL follows the adventures of politician Leif Sigurdarson, party hound, boozer, womanizer, ex-family man, who is sent to rehab by his friend, the Prime Minister. But before Leif is committed, he throws a party for his closest ones, including Erik, a business partner and underworld kingpin, Christina, his lawyer and loyal advisor, and Æsa, his young lover – and his daughter´s best friend.
      As the party progresses we learn more about Leif´s past, his dealings and relationships, and how he plans and executes his revenge on the Prime Minister. We discover not only a man crouching on the edge of an abyss, but a whole nation already falling into it after decades of identity crisis.
