Makkers staakt uw wild geraas

Film about Dutch society at the beginning of the 1960s.

Three families are preparing for an evening of Saint Nicholas cheer. Each of the families is having problems. One couple, an ad agency man and his wife are growing apart. Another, intensely respectable couple is having trouble coping with their wayward son. The husband in the third couple is an incorrigible womaniser who nevertheless tries to patch things up with his wife.
