Enacted scenes paint a picture of prominent people who publicly toppled from their pedestals. Diederik’s world collapsed after being exposed as a science fraud.

A series of enacted scenes paint an apt picture of prominent people in our society who, before the eyes of the nation, toppled from their pedestal in one way or another. The stories, shot in documentary style, are rooted in the present time. In this episode, Diederik plays the leading role. His world has come thundering down after he was exposed as a science fraud. In a theatre show, he subjects himself to an in-depth personality research.
