Things That Matter
Frans Bromet and his daughter Laura step into a controversial dialogue about society, ideals and responsibility.
Frans Bromet’s eldest daughter Laura is an idealistic politician who believes that the world can be changed. Frans has lost his confidence in policy and society and can hardly understand his daughter’s enthusiasm. So what do they still have in common? Together they go on a journey through the Netherlands to discover what citizenship means. Are we willing to take responsibility or does everybody only care for himself?
