Director: Martijn de Jong
A father does not resurface after a professional scuba dive session. His family is left shattered, without a chance to bid farewell. How will they find a way to cope with this?
A close-knit family is completely distraught when the father does not resurface after a professional scuba dive session. No funeral, no farewell, just a house full of memories. Weighed down with this unbearable loss, Merel (Thekla Reuten) avoids everything surrounding her husband’s death. This urges her young children to go and find answers themselves, so eventually the family comes to a grinding halt. Merel will have to face the loss in her own unique way, before she can start a new life with her children.
