For the first time, author Mark Retera's popular comic hero Dirkjan has been given a voice. From now on, his characteristic small head, pot belly and big shoes are accompanied by a fairly high-pitched voice with a soft g. In the beginning of this short animation, the unfortunate Dirkjan walks through the desert. In flashback, we learn why he ended up in the Foreign Legion. A story about love, a beautiful woman and an obtrusive colleague.
