Nothing much happens in this Belgian drama. Laarmans (Romain De Coninck) is an old man, and finds his family life claustrophobic. Most evenings, he escapes the confines of the house and wanders around Antwerp's red-light district. Three Afghani men who have become sailors approach him one evening, asking him to help them find a certain girl. As he wanders around the city with the three sailors, he fantasizes about what this girl must be like, but they never find her.
