This chillingly funny movie from the Netherlands introduces us to brothers Loet and Winnie, who are in their forties, but still live at home with their father Baltus. The sons have lived their entire life off their father’s pension and do everything he tells them to. But Baltus suddenly dies. Now what? The brothers have always heard they are incapable of anything and have never ventured further than the local store. So, to keep benefiting from the pension, they decide to put him in the freezer for the time being and find someone in a retirement home who can replace him.
