Zomerhitte directed by Monique van de Ven is based on a novelle by Jan Wolkers. The book became the yearly present publishers give to the public and had a circulation of more than half a million. The story plays on the island Texel Wolkers lived on for many years until his death.
A young photographer on assignment to capture the beautiful nature of the island gets involved with a mysterious and provocative woman. She’s involved in the drugtrade, though perhaps more innocently than consciously. When the situation escalates he tries to save her. But can he trust her?
