Visual representation of Vasalis' immortal poem De idioot in het bad. In a green-white surrounding, an old man takes a bath - one of the few moments in his life, otherwise controlled by others, when he can be himself. The camera caresses the man’s face and the details in the light bathroom. But the moment is inevitable when the resolute reality forces itself on him - under the watchful eye of poet and reciter Ramsey Nasr.
