Suze and her husband moved from Amsterdam to a small island in the Netherlands. They now live a warm-hearted, slow-paced life with their bubbly six-year-old daughter. Until the day, Suze's colourful, extravagant mother Helena pays them a visit after a long radio silence. When Helena informs Suze about the tumour in her head Suze decides to start travel back and forth to the city to help her. Being a theatre actress all her life, Helena knows how to sweetly manipulate her daughter into her reliance. Suze seems powerless to this force and slowly relapses into compulsive behaviour. Torn between her mother and her daughter, Suze's disorder swiftly gets worse and forces her to make an emotional but definite choice.
