Pauline (van der Groen) is a 66-year-old woman with a mental age of four, who is looked after by her doting sister, Martha (de Bruyn). However, when Martha dies, her will states that for either of Pauline's snobby sisters, Cecile and Paulette, to get any money, one of them must look after Pauline. The strength of Debrauwer's film lies in its simplicity, as he puts character before plot, and ensures that the emotion of the film is genuine. Pauline is presented as a person, rather than someone with a disability, with Dora van der Groen's unmannered performance being simply splendid.
