Set against the storms of 1953 in Zeeland, The Netherlands, this film tells the story of a young farmer's daughter, Julia (Hoeks), who is rescued against her will from a storm by a young airforce sergeant (Atsma) and is forced to leave her baby son behind in the rising water. Julia is grief-stricken but the sergeant is determined to make amends and help her find her son.

'This film is set against one of the most pivotal moments in our country's history', producer Alain de Levita said. 'The events following the breaching of the sea levees in 1953 have become the Dutch symbol for the way in which a divided people were unified in a monumental effort to rebuild lives and protect the land in the ongoing battle against the sea.
