Centraal replaces the talent development program: One Night Stand. In this six-part drama series, every episode will be created by a different team of directors, screenwriters and producers. The episodes will all be stand-alone projects, but they all have one thing in common: they meet each other at Rotterdam Central Station. During the writing process of Centraal, the teams work as a group under directions of screenwriter Mieke de Jong to tie the six screenplays together.
Afua is written by Ilse Ott and will be directed by Sia Hermanides:
When Afua can’t go on a school trip, she feels angry and alone. The whole world – and especially her mother – can go to hell. But then she bumps into the few years older Naz, who offers her a way to an alternative thrill.
