Sebastian is 23 years old, has no education and still lives at home. He spends all his time gaming at the local internet café, Play-it-Alive.

He wants to start a professional Counter Strike team! With his four friends, Henrik, Gustav, Kasim and Toke, he forms a team in hopes of winning the big Counter Strike tournament, Crazy LAN Randers.
