Is image everything? When pop star Richie is robbed of his gold Rolex, he puts everything at stake one night to save his reputation and career. Exhilarating thriller by award-winning director Shady El-Hamus (De Libi).
Richie (Golden Calf winner Jonas Smulders) is on the verge of becoming the biggest pop star in the Netherlands, when a group of armed teenagers robs him of his showpiece: a gold Rolex. When footage of the robbery goes viral and rapper Richie feels publicly humiliated, he pulls out all stops to get his watch back. How far will Richie go in this feverish cat-and-mouse game to save his image and prove he is indomitable?
