A Man Falls from the Sky

Ton and Ineke Korrel enjoy their warm afternoon soup when a man crashes down from the sky, in their garden. Ton sees a dangerous species lying in his garden, while Ineke just wants to help. The situation escalates. The couple will soon find out who their other half really is. Hopefully before it's too late.
