The story deals with a cynical, rule-abiding civil servant of the social services (played by Gerard Thoolen), whose life changes when he is confronted with a girl that has been locked up in a closet for years by her mentally deficient parents. The film won a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and the Dutch Critics Award.
