Drama production with the motto: 'Pain, at least that is something you can point out.' Noordeloos is an absurd everyday drama. It is the story of people who usually remain unnoticed. An engine driver who secretly dreams of being derailed one day; a housewife suffering from cancer and an unmarried sister with an unfulfilled desire who is passing her days as an angler. They are struck by a fate that is just as commonplace as they are. One of them, the ill woman, will die. The two remaining people, her husband and single sister will be condemned to each other. Unexpectedly, they get entangled in a web of desire, guilt and vain hope. All three of them know: that is life.
