This is the true story of a remarkable love between two ordinary people: Rika, a typical Dutch mother of four, and Waldemar, a Surinamese man 17 years her junior. Their love is strong enough to withstand nearly all prejudices and opposition, until it comes up against the devastating power of the Second World War.
