Five boys and a girl, filmed every four years for twenty years. They are all born in 1990. They spend their first years together at the Roomtuintjes day-care centre in Amsterdam-East. Next, everybody goes his or her own way. What determines their life course? Is it their parents? Is it school? Is it their friends? Or do children just follow nature’s lead and does life run its course? A look at how different personalities become adults. Each time shot by the same film crew, who developed parallel to the children.
