Met Grote Blijdschap
Cast & Crew
Luc Sipkes and his very pregnant wife Mieke unexpectedly receive a phone call from an acquaintance: Luc's brother Ad has just been sighted in the vicinity of La Roche in the Belgian Ardennes. Fifteen years ago, Ad disappeared without trace and Luc and his family have not heard a word from him ever since. Now it turns out that, for no apparent reason, he is living with his wife in seclusion far from the inhabited world. In an attempt to fathom Ad's motives, Luc goes to stay with the couple for a few days, albeit uninvited. Tensions rise. When Luc hears strange sounds around the house, he starts to feel ill at ease and stumbles across a disconcerting secret.
