Synopsis

Well-known novelist and literary monument, 55-year-old Jan Meerman’s successful life is thrown upside down when his 85-year-old mother, Josée Verbeke, unexpectedly has a severe stroke. Jan no longer recognizes his once lively mother as her verbal witticisms have been replaced by pitiful cries and gibberish.

In these difficult times Jan faces the upcoming deadline of his new novel. The confrontation he has to engage with the decline of his mother makes him question his priorities.

Based on the bestseller ‘Sprakeloos’ of Tom Lanoye. This will be the fifth feature film of Hilde Van Mieghem.
