Looking for his girlfriend, Mikhael ends up in a hospital that uses extreme methods. Directing debut of actor Everon Jackson Hooi, also featured in NFF’s opening film Buladó.
None other than Pierre Bokma plays the sly medical director of a private hospital using unorthodox methods. ‘Religion is a disease and we’re going to cure you’, he preaches to the newly arrived Mikhael. Mikhael thinks of the girlfriend he lost. They were in love, but religion drove them apart. With this grim mix of science fiction and harsh reality, first-time filmmaker Everon Jackson Hooi, known as an actor in the Dutch soap opera GTST, depicts the growing harshness of our society. A divided and fearful society full of dangerous polarisation.
