Een ochtend van zes weken

Jimmy, a racing driver meets Annette, a model from Paris at the Zandvoort circuit.

They both use their work as a means of escape, and during their brief affair neither of the two has the courage to be their true self. The subsequent series of misunderstandings between them causes Annette to decide to return to Paris when her work in Amsterdam is finished. In this process of growth, of reaching maturity, Jimmy loses not only the girl he loves but also his self-assurance, and he has no choice but to abandon his racing career.
