“The new singing sensation from West-Friesland.”

A grand and compelling life in a flat and superficial space. Sensitivity to drama arises from repulsion from the environment. Wanting more and wanting to leave; romantic ideas in a small life. The film revolves around a character who engages in a dramatized romance in the landscape of West Friesland. The main character Martin Malibu undergoes a manic romance with Lidia. Martin lives for the story; all he does and says is to further dramatize and romanticize his own story. Martin is over top and narcissistic. A real softboy.
