Antwerp 1521, during the Reformation. 12-year-old Storm Voeten, son of printer Klaas Voeten, becomes the target of a hunt by the Inquisition. Aided by Marieke, a mysterious girl living in the underground sewers of Antwerp, Storm is caught in a race against time to save his father from death.
This historical family film dramatizes the events behind the Reformation and it takes place against the background of the late Middle Ages, particularly the 16th century reformation, when freedom of speech was under threat in Europe. Thanks in part to the rise of the printing press, this led to a dangerous struggle for power and significant political, religious, economic and social changes. For the first time, it became possible for people to spread their ideas on a large scale, comparable to the rise of social media in our time.
