TV series about the everyday concerns of two fifteen-year-old bosom friends. When Dunya's parents are away for a couple of days, the coast is clear for Dunya and Desie to chase after the boys.

Episode of a seven-part series about the everyday concerns of two fifteen-year-old bosom friends (film début of both actresses). Moroccan Dunya lives with her parents and younger brother; cheeky Dutch Desi lives with her divorced, golden-haired and tight leggings wearing type of mother. Going against all the rules of school and home, the two girls always know better. Dunya has the role of the narrator. Her voice-over tells the viewer what the girls are concerned about in life. In Dood en de jongen (Death and the Boy) Dunya's parents are away to Morocco for a burial. Father Nabil tells Soufian to behave, as he is the man in the house. Mother Kenza implores Dunya to watch after her brother, being the eldest. Dunya and Desie can't bother, their plans are completely different: they invite Desie's latest crush Francis en Dunya`s secret love Bob.
