Synopsis: Is it possible to see the future in what surrounds us now? Two dutch couples, sixty years apart in age, discuss the past, present and future of their love. They have close ties to an area called ‘de IJmond’, a coastal region built around a gigantic steel mill in the west of the Netherlands.
