Action-packed Dutch thriller
Hans, a self-confident and somewhat stubborn man, travels the country with his family to visit his parents. They left the house too late. While driving on the highway Hans starts to tailgate a white van that is driving the exact speed limit. When the cars stop, Ed, the driver of the van, confronts Hans on his moral compass and more particularly on his responsibility as a father. The proud Hans refuses to be lectured by a stranger and Ed refuses to be silenced by him. Out of revenge, Ed starts to follow the family. This results in a rapidly escalating situation. The family is nowhere safe anymore and is becoming more and more paranoid of every white van they come across on the road.
