Synopsis

Groningen, the Netherlands. Jos wakes up in a homeless shelter, the place he regularly spends the night. It's almost ten o'clock in the morning. Street-life commences, regardless of the weather. Whether he's sick or not, whether he wants to or not: Jos has to leave. Like all other days. The shelter will reopen in twelve hours. Twelve hours isn’t easily spent outside in the cold. But today is different; Jos has a plan. He is going to make up for what he did. He'll have to convince his girlfriend and his friends. Jos is going to change, starting today. No more drinking, no more smoking, no more coke, heroin or other drugs. Never. Jos really wants to change. He's quitting his bad habits today. Really! Today is the day. Or, well, maybe tomorrow.
