The Resurrection of a Bastard by Guido van Driel

Resurrection of a Bastard, The

A hilarious and lyrical story, with a sometimes  grim undertone, based on the graphic novel by Guido van Driel.

A criminal from Amsterdam, barely having survived a liquidation. An old Frisian farmer bent on revenge. An illegal immigrant with uncertain prospects. In the end they meet under an ancient oak tree. Beyond the last town.
