De Ontmoeting - In het bloed

Director: Marc de Leeuw
As a boy, the Rotterdam-based stunt man Nick Holiday dreamt of following in his legendary father’s footsteps. Nick grows up and lives his dream. Until disillusionment strikes, as this documentary shows.
Nick jr. (47) was brought up on stunt work by his legendary father Nick Holiday, who in the 1980s set world records as a stunt man. But even his father’s gruelling training could not prepare Nick jr. for the serious ordeal awaiting him. This documentary introduces us to the life of a stunt man: the hardships, the sacrifices, the love between father and son and the euphoria of the perfect stunt.
