They are based on Sjoerd and Jorrit Tamminga and Paul and Menno de Nooijer. Both couples have a close bond in which working together and creating their own work plays an important role. When the fathers are taken ill, the time of letting go and saying goodbye starts. What happens very abruptly with Sjoerd and Jorrit, is a long process with Paul and Menno which is explored during the performance. At the end of the story, both sons will start a new, independent chapter, leaving the father behind.
