Julia Roeselers experienced a stick-up. The boy next door turned out to be the offender. So? Her fears and doubts spark off a mild search through the world of justice and restorative mediation.

All of a sudden, you are a victim and the boy next door turns out to be the offender. This happened to filmmaker Julia Roeselers when she experienced a stick-up in a local pub. Crack down on criminals as hard as possible? Despite the shock and the emotions, Roeselers is not after revenge or retribution. Her questions about the boy next door and his mother’s grief point the way in this mild search for experiences with criminal justice, victimisation, juvenile delinquency and the rarely used restorative mediation between perpetrator and victim.
