When a father misbehaves during a weekend-holiday, his surroundings will make him feel very unwelcome, while his wife and son turn against him.
Toine, Iris and their 9 year old son Jacco seek the hilly and picturesque south of The Netherlands for a weekend of quality time and relaxation. Toine – clearly the self-proclaimed head of the family – starts to behave erratically. His manners seem to look out of place in these idyllic surroundings. It won’t take long before his family will have enough of his behavior.
