You think your relationship is proof against anything, but what if your boyfriend is considered a terrorist by the entire country?

Nicolette and Mohammed have just moved in together when the harbour of Rotterdam is struck by a mayor disaster. The impact is huge and The Netherlands are in a state of shock. Almost instantly the possibility of a terrorist attack is considered and a lot of people, mostly muslims, are arrested. Mohammed is also thrown in jail and when he manages to escape he is soon seen as public enemy number one. Nicolette however, continues to believe in his innocence.

Realised withing the Telefilm project of the Dutch public broadcasters.
