The grass is greener on the other side…
Axel is a Boeroe, a white Surinamer, who has been living in The Netherlands for 20 years. When his mom
Gladys calls the family back for Christmas, supposedly to make an important announcement, Alex
reluctantly returns back to Surinam with his wife. Over dinner, however, the situation explodes as Axel
and his brother Virgil argue heatedly. On top of that, Axel’s daughter Wonnie confesses that she is
pregnant. This is the start of a rollercoaster adventure under the Surinamese sun.
