Short comical drama about megalomania, the art of self-deception and unconditional friendship. When a failed young man returns to Leeuwarden, his old friends are full of plans.
Marcus, once considered highly promising, comes crawling back to Leeuwarden, where he promptly spends weeks on his mother’s couch. But he has not reckoned with his old school friends, a bunch of reckless planners who immediately drag him to their favourite haunt. Simply because they believe in Marcus and his talent, and because they need him to realise their insane plans. Comical and touching drama about a group of bunglers in a city full of try-outs and ambitious projects.
