Containing a hefty dose of Monty Pythonesque humour, Daan Bakker’s visually surreal debut feature shows the struggle of five young men who find themselves in absurd yet highly lifelike situations.

Koen attends a family reunion and pretends to be as crazy about ham and milk as he once was. Amateur photographer Stefaan wants to record childhood memories and moves back with his parents. Kjell, to recover his sense of self-worth, travels back in time. Karel, who was kidnapped by aliens as a child, returns to his loving parents in a wondrous new form. Jef faces the challenge of pleasing his new in-laws.

“I use humour to put things into perspective for myself and, consequently, for the audience. I have an urge to ridicule things that bother me, like insecurity, depression or anxiety, because I want to make them less powerful. Using humour or absurdism wasn’t really a choice, but I can’t imagine this film without them.” (Daan Bakker)
