Gift from the Heart

Brothers Tom and Niek run the family costume shop. Former soapstar Tom takes nothing seriously. Niek, on the other hand, is a workaholic, and has recently separated from his wife. As the brothers prepare for the busy holiday season, attractive Julia walks through the door with an offer they can't refuse - to participate in a ground-breaking ad campaign. The brothers find themselves in a whirlwind of family issues, national cultural matters and romance, after which neither will ever be the same.
