The age-old enneagon is a circle enclosing a nine-pointed figure. The theory is that the points repre­sent different types of person­ality, of which every man possesses one basic type that will never change. In each episode of the nine-part TV series Het ennea­gram, a different arche­type is treated, like the winner in Bruno & Violet. Leading char­acter is the very old multi­mil­lion­aire Mrs. Brederode. When doctors tell her that she has only six months to live at the most, she remi­nisces about her sole heir, her grandson Bruno. Flash­backs reveal how the boy, at the age of thir­teen, was the only one who managed to escape from a sinking car, after which his grand­mother reluc­tantly became the person to raise him. Now that Violet has swapped her villa for a nursing home, it annoys her immensely that Bruno never drops by. She devises a lure that will surely draw her money-loving grand­child’s atten­tion: she announces her marriage to a thirty-year-old geri­atric helper. Bruno inter­prets this situ­a­tion as a contest, the inher­i­tance being the first prize.
