Short drama with a smile about the art of saying goodbye. When a faithful factory worker is about to retire, nobody is really prepared on the final day.

Peter de Reuver, a taciturn but fine bloke, is a ‘senior potato chips manufacturing processor and trainer’. Or in other words: an assembly line worker. After 29 dedicated years, he is about to retire. A seemingly easy decision, but the final working day still arrives very suddenly. For everybody. How to behave in the final hours together? What to say? Awkwardness and tenderness appear to be interchangeable. A short drama with a smile, about the art of saying goodbye.
