Black comedy in which the government presents a solution to problems like the ageing society and increasing youth unemployment. The crisis has hit the Netherlands like a hammer and in the midst of this dire recession, the Baby Boom Send-off Disposition Civil Servants is just what the doctor ordered; a remarkable act that will buck up the Netherlands. Two brisk officials call on all sorts of baby boomers who are eligible for this disposition, entailing a solution of only 30 milligrams. Until one of them starts feeling remorse.
