EN - Talking money, faking love. Wim, an accountant who suffers from mild depression, gets his monthly visit from his half-brother Gert. Gert is young and full of life, the complete opposite of his misanthropic brother. Or so it seems. Gert brings a surprise for Wim, who could use some cheering up. The surprise is called Lise. She is a foulmouthed, chubby escort. Just the type of girl that Wim likes, according to his brother. Wim isn’t really in the mood, but Gert already paid for Lise’s services. No refunds. The three of them then decide to just talk for an hour. About life, about love and some other silly things. They hit it off instantly: they laugh, they dance, they eat cheese. All three of them feel their loneliness disappear, or is it all just fake?
