'Achter De Duinen' tells the story of Flo who breaks free from her boring country life and discovers love in the big city. 'De Hoed, De Pet En De Buggy' shows a funny standoff between three ordinary people in a warehouse. Chuck Jones tries to scatter his deceased mother on the beach in 'Private Affairs', only to accidentally switch her ashes with the package of a drug courier. Two cowboys try to escape their isolated world in 'Reis Naar Het Paradijs'. We get to see what really happened in 'The Truth About Billy The Kid' when present and past are being mixed. 'Er Was Eens...' gives a feminist look about women's oppression and their eternal fight for freedom and justice. 'Je Durft Het Niet' is about a nice guy who struggles with his inner evil self. Eventually the selling of a special bike is the center of 'Geluksijzer'. Written by Arjen Rooseboom
