They are called 'Hokkers', the punks and skaters in the Friesian village of Ureterp. Their nickname refers to the hok (shed) that they have built behind the meadows. In a village where there's nothing to do, this spot and their friendship is all that is nice about Ureterp. They feel at home here. They have fun, talk about narrow-minded village life, quarrels with their parents of the compulsory trip to church. In the village they are watched with suspicion and people gossip about theft and drugs use. Because why can't they be like 'the farmers', who are proud of their land, cross with their motorbikes and have no ambition to leave the village?
