Sunny Side Up

Daan and Judith form the perfect couple: young, attractive, full-blooded Amsterdammers. For their sixth anniversary, they decide on a romantic weekend on an island off the north coast. But they have chosen the wrong weekend. Once a year, the islanders celebrate Sunderum, a traditional event at which outsiders are not welcome. The islanders politely ask the couple to leave, but when they refuse, the torment begins. Cracks in their relationship gradually come to light and old demons start to resurface...
