Arie from Rotterdam is working on his second book, but he is not really making headway. With not only his publisher, but also his landlord on his heels, he develops a serious writer's block. Then, out of the blue, Arie meets his dream woman: the red-haired tram driver Sonja. When the tram service is discontinued, he frenetically searches for her. Will this muse become Arie’s salvation or his downfall? Tragicomedy, based on Aat Ceelen’s novella, is larded with absurdist fantasies and animations.
