Synopsis / Plot
After a bungled burglary, Dave (Jeroen Perceval) is forced to run away, leaving his brother Kenneth (Kevin Janssens) behind, who then receives a four-year prison sentence but does not snitch on his brother. When he gets out, he fully intends to restart his life from where he left off with it. But inevitably, the situation has changed: Sylvie (Veerle Baetens), his girlfriend, doesn’t want to see him anymore, and Dave, who is now teetotal, persists in wanting to get back on the right track. What he doesn’t know is that Dave and Sylvie have something else that they are hiding from him: they both dream of a clean, mundane, law-abiding life, where their small family that is in the pipeline will be able to flourish.
