What if memories emerge behind the mists that shed new light on the past?
Fay grew up in a country house in the Drenthe countryside, where the mists adhere to the peat. In the Randstad she then built up an apparently perfect life with her great love Frank. This comes under pressure when she decides to temporarily move in with her after her mother's accident. Much to Frank's dismay.
An old school friend of Fay also comes back to the village. He is looking for the riddles of his childhood. His questions and presence confront Fay with her girlish dreams. And what is her mother actually trying to tell her between the misty fairy tales?
As Fay's perfect life slowly falls apart, the mists of the past lift. A secret is unraveled.
