After a one-year absence, protagonist Evert pays a visit to his friends in the cafeteria. Dressed smartly and brandishing an expensive camera - he is a photographer now - he meets snack bar owner Greet, who is currently dating an American, the intellectual Adje, and Truus, who is willing to pose for Evert. The latter pretends he is prospering.
