What is the price to pay for being a whistleblower in the world of sports? This documentary follows the professional bridge player Boye Brogeland. He got his life turned upside down after speaking up about a possible scandal that would shake the bridge community.

Boye Brogeland’s boyhood dream came true when making it as a professional bridge player. He has traveled the world earning millions. During a big tournament in Chicago, Boye started suspecting that top-ranked players were cheating. He had no proof, but knew something was wrong. The bridge unions would not take the matter further, and the family father risked his own career and finances by going public with the allegations. A month before the World Cup, Boye named four of the world's best bridge partners as cheaters. Suddenly bridge was making news headlines worldwide with Boye Brogeland in the eye of the storm. We follow Boye from the time before the fateful event in Chicago until the cheating cases were settled in 2016.
