Nijenhuis's successor to his hit film Costa! is set on and around a summery Mallorca. The romantic comedy introduces eight school-leavers from Twente who after their finals are invited by Hans's (Cas Jansen) father, the entrepreneur Nijhuis, to get a breath of air on his yacht on the Mediterranean Sea. He is driven purely by self-interest, because he makes the condition that Hans will bribe his elder brother Ties (Daan Schuurmans) and bring him back to the Netherlands to run the family company together. But Ties dreams of a career as a musician, although he feels impeded by his Twente accent. On the boat, several amorous entanglements take place and each of the passengers is forced to make an important decision. Particularly Hans has great difficulties with his mission. At a secret Full Moon Party on the nearby isle of Formentera, Ties manages to make a breakthrough with the help of an Amsterdam singer (Ellen ten Damme) and Hans makes a shocking choice. Awarded as Golden and Platina Film.
