Drijfzand Lang Televisie Drama, 2003, 92 min.

Tragic TV drama, from a new series of six Telefilms, tells the story of Frits (Johnny de Mol). For all this farmer's son knows, his mother died when giving birth to him. He and his father make up a strong team. In the literal and figurative sense, because his father (Dimme Treurniet) not only teaches him to milk the cows and hunt, he is also the coach of his soccer team. The happy tide turns when the boy turns eighteen and is scouted as a promising soccer talent. Suddenly, Frits's future is no longer with his father on the farm, but on the green grass of the Nijmegen soccer club NEC. His son's splendid soccer career may be the crowning glory of the farmer's hard work, but he is afraid he will also lose his only child. Desperate, he reveals the lie with which he raised his son. Frits is bewildered and makes a dramatic decision.
