Towards the end of World War II, Joke, Nel, Dries and Zip are sent from one German camp to another, further and further away from their home country: the Netherlands. But suddenly the rumour of Hitler’s death starts spreading. The next morning an unknown guard opens the doors and a truck with Russian soldiers arrives.
The foursome decides to travel home by boat. Along the way, they’re faced with the aftermath of the war: plundering soldiers, scarce food supplies, and many Germans refusing to offer a place to stay. How do you start a journey when the roads are blocked? Who can you trust in a country where the Naziregime has only just fallen?
