Roderik Schaepman remembers barely anything of the period when he was nine and his manic-depressive father abruptly left, leaving behind his family shattered and with towering debts. Years later, Daan resurfaced. The painful past is still shunned, but now Roderik wants to break out of this situation. In this personal documentary, he looks for answers from his father, mother and brother. Can he mend the family ties? And to what degree does Roderik take after his father?
