TIRO  (1979)

Matthias Maat, Geert de Jong

Directed by
Jacob Bijl

Plot Summary
Tom, a boy on the verge of adulthood, rebels against the proposed drainage of the holms and marshes where, in the family tradition, he has hunted ducks with great passion. Tom uses the impending drainage accepted by his father as a pretext for unleashing all his antipathies and frustrations. Between Tom and Lily, who is more than a sister to him, exists a deep bond which is threatened by the industrialist who plans to build a factory on the terrain in question. Tom has a warm, reassuring friendship with his grandfather. When the old man dies, Tom feels so abandoned that any realistic goal in this society appears to him to be totally futile.
