Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The title of this dark satire from the Netherlands has nothing to do with communicable diseases and everything to do with the name of the Van Doorn meat-packing corporation. The Van Doorn family has a network of mistresses, relatives, and alliances as complicated as anything in Byzantine history and a warehouse-full of dark, dastardly family secrets. Those secrets and alliances become clear as the intrigues on the factory floor and within the family lead in tandem to blackmail and murder.
