Alberta by Eddy Terstall & Erik Wünsch


A humorous reflection on human weaknesses.

Freek is a 49-year-old advertising executive and media figure. He appears to have it all: he has won many awards in his field, he has a great wife Iris and a son called Werner. But Freek is a womanizer, and when he meets the dazzling young Alberta he really falls for her. She persuades him to go to the place with which she shares a name; Alberta in the Canadian Rockies. But when boredom strikes, Alberta leaves Freek hopeless and alone. Can he handle life on his own?
