This new tragi-comedy by Paula van der Oest tells the story of a group of friends who come together to commemorate their deceased friend and inspiration Kas.
A group of friends who all used to play in a band together meet up to scatter the ashes of Kas, their singer and frontman. With one exception, they have all moved on to different things, leaving their rock ‘n’ roll pasts behind. For some of them, life hasn’t turned out the way they would have wanted – but the reunion promises to be fun, chaotic and fuelled by drink, just like the old days. Until one of the friends turns up, accompanied by his latest girlfriend – the (too) much younger Delphina.
