The film was directed by Tim Klok and written by Joeri Pruys.
The story, set in the sixties, revolves around Thomas, an extremely wealthy man, played by Bokma. When his beautiful wife Nathalie (Sytske van der Ster) is kidnapped on a holiday in the south of France, he tries to buy her back with his fortune. But this causes him to get entangled in a centuries-old feud, that is being fought in true medieval fashion.
