After Onno, a balding, 35 year old, socially awkward young man, finds his father laying dead in the Christmas tree, Onno’s mother hands him her husband’s car and Sheepdog Snow, telling Onno to take care of them. When he loses Snow, Onno gets stuck in a state of limbo. Driving his car, he roams through no man’s land. A charming woman asks for directions, but Onno doesn’t know what to say. When his frustrations hit rock bottom, Onno is able to break through his inertia. Finally he’s able to say farewell to his father and start living a life of his own.
