Author Kees van Beijnum adapted his much-acclaimed novel De ordening for a tele­film. Prin­cipal char­acter is the nihilism-bent Stella. As a grad­u­ated student of jour­nalism, she is offered a job by former Dutch national socialist Ewald de Heus Verol­men’s still extreme rightwing widow, who wants to record her memoirs. Antic­i­pating a scoop, Stella accepts the job. Very accu­rately, she sorts out the archive of the reviled lady and her deceased husband, without judging about good or evil. Halfway through the summer, the myste­rious Andreas pays a visit to the widow. He claims to be the grandson of her former lover, who confis­cated Jewish art collec­tions during the war. Stella falls for Andreas. Unwit­tingly, she becomes entan­gled in a shady conspiracy, which has its dénoue­ment in Switzerland.
