VRIENDINNEN

TV series directed by Cecilia Verheyden in a Menuet production.

World War II  has just ended. Nel, 18, and her mother live in a suburb of a Flemish provincial town. Nel is full of life, flamboyant, brimming with energy.  Eva, the new neighbours’ 18-year-old daughter, on the other hand, is a timid girl, inexperienced, lacking confidence. When the two girls meet at the liberation ball, an unlikely friendship burgeons between them. Their lives take sudden and surprising twists and turns, but their friendship remains unscathed.

This 10-episode series is a story about 'with and without you’.
More than 75 years of friendship. How do you cope with it? A story of love and disappointment, of conflict and longing. But above all a feel-good story, tinged with nostalgia and romance.
