Synopsis:
Winnie (12) and Siem (12) meet when their parents, RIK and TOSCA, fall in love in the playground of their school. They quickly form a ‘patchwork family’. Siem is pretty used to this already as his father, Rik, has been through two marriages already.

Siem and Winnie get on really well together and are looking forward to the upcoming wedding between their parents. But when irritations and bickering start to take over between Rik and Tosca, Siem and Winnie’s faith in a new happy family takes its first knock. They decide to help their parents out by making an ‘instruction video’ for them with useful relationship tips. While filming these ‘relationship tips’, Siem and Winnie become even closer. How difficult can it be to just be happy with one another?
