English-spoken fictional story about a jour­nalist looking for Natalee Holloway. He hopes to force a break­through by breaking into Joran van der Sloot’s apart­ment and makes a shocking discovery.

Me & Mr. Jones on Natalee Island is the fictional story of an under­cover jour­nalist on Aruba, based on the case of the vanished Amer­ican girl Natalee Holloway. Five years after her disap­pear­ance, jour­nalist Remi hopes to force a break­through by breaking into Joran van der Sloot’s apart­ment. To secure himself an alibi, he hires escort girl Eva, with whom he is suppos­edly on a honey­moon. Precisely on the fifth birthday of the disap­pear­ance, they make a blood-curdling discovery.
Both Remi and Eva are haunted by ghosts. After a blunder, Remi tries to get even with his father, a famous crime jour­nalist. And Eva’s days are numbered.
Paul Ruven shot the English-spoken film in May and June of 2010 on Aruba, without making it public. During the shooting, Van der Sloot got into trouble in Peru. Ruven incor­po­rated this in his film, just like he mixed facts and theo­ries about what took place in 2005 with a fictional plot.
