Seven-part youth series for VPRO TV about an illusionist who leads a double life as gambler. Thanks to a formula in a secret chip, he is very good at it. When he is blackmailed, he decides to disappear off the face of the earth. His wife moves back to their old neighbourhood, where she starts a café and lodging house. The illusionist roams there, sometimes in disguise, while his pursuer gets closer on his heels. Each episode focuses on a different group of people. The provision and lack of information forms a significant theme of this series.
