The elderly Tom Werf returns from his winter home and finds out that his name has been deleted from the government's central computer. His benefits are stopped, he loses his place in a retirement home and is condemned to life as a homeless vagabond. His fight against bureaucracy and the technological society are also symbolic for his quest for his own identity.
