A group of friends who all used to play in a band together meet up to scatter the ashes of Kas, their singer and frontman. With one exception, they have all moved on to different things, leaving their rock ‘n’ roll pasts behind. For some of them, life hasn’t turned out the way they would have wanted – but the reunion promises to be fun, chaotic and fuelled by drink, just like the old days. Until one of the friends appears accompanied by his latest girlfriend – the (too) much younger Delphina. Her effect on the group is pretty devastating, as friendships are put to the severest of tests.
Paula van der Oest is a Dutch writer/director whose film credits are many and include the Academy Award Nominated Best Foreign Language Film Zus & Zo. Some of her more recent projects include the Accused (2014) and Tonio (2016), both of which were selected as the Dutch Oscar submission for those years. Some of Paula’s other outstanding films include Black Butterflies which received multiple awards both in the Netherlands and the US. The Domino Effect earned a Best Director award, and her lauded thriller Moonlight.
