Every night, a group of dockworkers gather in a seedy harbour pub to drink away the day. What remains of their close bond when one of the four men leaves the country?
In harbour bar Obesk, the room is always blue with smoke and four dockworker friends are part of the furniture. When one of them tries his luck in Milan, the three remaining comrades soon sense that his departure heralds the end of their group. Is Obesk still their snug haunt, or just a meeting place for lonely people? By director and multi-talent Jonas Smulders, who in 2015 won the Golden Calf for Best TV Drama Actor.
