Like every year, the friends Julie and Xiomara celebrate carnival together. The day is filled with their regular rituals, but it slowly dawns on Julie she will have to miss Xiomara next year, since she will move from Aruba to the Netherlands. The girls will never see each other anymore like they do now. The melancholy film tells the story of hundreds of students who annually leave the ABC islands for a study in the Netherlands. This means they leave behind everything and everybody to start a new life in a strange environment.
