FATAAL tells the story of Milan. He has a dream. He wants a club. A club where you can dance to good music from the best DJs until late into the night. And he wants to marry Sophie. Because Milan is a steady biter and a go-getter, the club is quickly a big success. But one evening a few aggressive boys are expelled from the club. They wait for Milan and beat him up. Milan ends up in a wheelchair; he will never be able to stand on his feet again. How does he get over that trauma? Are all his dreams falling apart? And will love for Sophie stand? A poignant story about senseless violence and its consequences; but also a story about the power of love.
FATAAL is written by Dick van den Heuvel with music by Jeroen Sleyfer and can be seen from Thursday 5 April 2018 in 25 Dutch theaters.
