A bold, amateur kidnapping goes wildly awry in this fictionalized account of beer magnate Alfred Heineken's (Rutger Hauer's) 1983 abduction, which would go on to become one of The Netherlands' most infamous crimes.

A fictional story within the historical context of the disastrous flood that engulfed the Dutch coastal province of Zeeland in 1953. When their farmhouse is destroyed by the flood, teenage mother Julia gets separated from her baby boy, whom she kept hidden in a box. She is saved from drowning by a young air force lieutenant, who agrees to go help looking for Julia's little son. A near-hopeless quest ensues.Written by

In the movie Julia is saved by a helicopter the morning after the flood, and the wind and water are calm. In reality, a strong gale was still blowing the day after, preventing an air rescue. See more »
We had the privilege to see this movie on his World Premiere in Vlissingen. The actual area where this took place.
It was also the start of the "Film by the Sea" film festival and the whole Dutch film world was invited.
It is a beautiful film, well done with special effects which you don't see actually and a gripping story. All the performances are believable and if you like "De Tweeling" and "Bride Fligt" from the same director then you have to see this movie ! After the screening there was a huge party and we met a lot of famous actors from the Netherlands. We had a great night ! So for me this is a 8 out of 10.
Enjoy the movie, we did !
