Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this film director Herman van Veen, a popular Dutch singer, also plays the role of Herman, a popular Dutch singer - not too much of a stretch. Herman is getting tired of his marriage, his wife, and everything that goes with his home life. When he tries to make a break of it and turns to other women, he starts to miss his son and cannot reconcile his own conflicting emotions. As an outlet to his feelings, he decides to compose and perform songs that will reflect his turmoil, and perhaps thereby release it. Interspersed with the musical performances and the singer's dilemma are scenes of an interview in which Herman cannot get a word in edgewise, and some shared time with his son that show the bonds the father does not want to break. In the end, Herman will have to resolve his conflicts, one way or another.
