Loonies 2

A brand new adventure with Holland’s favourite psychiatric patients.

Nursing Home Zonnedael has been shut down and the psychiatric in-patients Bep Brul, the Major, Fats, Mrs. de Haas and Dr. Doolittle are re-introduced into society against their wishes. The kind Nurse ten Hoeven is grieving as her main purpose in life has gone. To make matters worse, she is kidnapped. When the patients hear of this they immediately embark on a mad and risky rescue mission, which reveals the incredible truth behind the kidnapping.
