Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
When Jan (Cas Enklaar) visits his father (Geert de Jong) on his deathbed, he tries to reconcile for years of mutual animosity. Flashbacks are used to tell the story of the family's struggles beginning in the 1930s and through World War II until the 1960s. The family is trapped in a love-hate cycle that belies the Protestant religious foundation that serves as faith.
