Home Is Where the Heart Is

The grass is greener on the other side...

Axel is a boeroe, a white Surinamer, who has been living in The Netherlands for 20 years. When his mom Gladys calls the family back for Christmas, supposedly to make an important announcement, Alex reluctantly returns back to Surinam with his wife. Over dinner, however, the situation explodes as Axel and his brother Virgil argue heatedly. On top of that, Axel's daughter Wonnie confesses that she is pregnant. This is the start of a rollercoaster adventure under the Surinamese sun.
