Based on the best-selling autobiographical “requiem novel” by one of the country’s most renowned writers, A.F.Th. van der Heijden, this warm and understanding drama explores the lives of the Amsterdam novelist and his wife after the death of their 21-year-old son, Tonio. Cutting back and forth between vignettes from the boy’s life, the shock of his sudden biking accident, and their coming to grips with the loss, van der Oest movingly conveys the parents’ fathomless sadness and profound powerlessness.
