TV play, based on an original screenplay by Robert Long. A young journalist interviews a world famous gay playwright. The young man tries to elicit some revealing statements from the 52-year-old writer, who is known for his frank, not to say shocking language. The conversation however takes quite a different turn when the gay writer, tired of the banal questions, starts interrogating the young reporter mercilessly. When the controversial autobiographical play Kapotte levens (Broken Lives) is brought up, the interview turns into a revealing confrontation. The talk turns out to be less haphazard than it looked at first sight.
