À la fin années 1970, la rivalité est intense entre les deux tennismen Björn Borg et John McEnroe. Le calme et l'expérience du Suédois s'opposent à la fougue et au caractère explosif de l'Américain. Björn Borg, alors numéro un mondial, est une superstar mondiale, alors que McEnroe est fortement critiqué pour son attitude et son langage sur le court. Malgré le soutien indéfectible de sa fiancée Mariana Simionescu et de son entraineur Lennart Bergelin, Borg est cependant rempli de doutes à l'idée d'aller chercher un 5e titre d’affilé lors du tournoi de Wimbledon 1980.

Set against the backdrop of the 1976 election, the story is centred on delinquent teenager Iris (Sofia Karemyr), who is sent to live in a juvenile home. She meets Sonja (Josefin Asplund) there and the two regularly slip away for adventures in the city. Together they are recruited to the prostitution ring operated by Dagmar Glans (Pernilla August), a madam well-known to the authorities. Dagmar's clients are mostly rich and powerful men, including senior politicians of the day. She becomes the subject of a police investigation led by a young vice officer, John Sandberg (Simon J. Berger). Sandberg soon discovers Glans has powerful clients but also finds his investigation hampered by his superiors and his life threatened by sinister figures. Police break up the prostitution ring but the powerful clients avoid being named in the scandal and Dagmar's trial concludes with her receiving a suspended sentence before Iris can testify about being an underage prostitute. In the aftermath of the trial, Sandberg is killed in a hit and run incident and his report into the affair is classified by the newly elected government. The film ends with Iris running away from the juvenile home, her ultimate fate ambiguous.
