The concept is so successful that he is soon running a veritable "friends empire". Things really take off when Alfred hires the highly inventive manager Françoise. Moniek, by this time, is lonely and unhappy perhaps it is time she calls Rent a Friend?
The setting of Rotterdam skyscrapers and Japanese gardens creates a imaginative background for this modern urban fairy tale.

He takes a different approach and leads us on an exciting trip into a world where plastic dreams and true feelings meet each other.
