1888, the magnificent Central Station in Amsterdam is being built, and in an effort to gentrify the area, all houses must yield for the planned luxury Victoria Hotel. A luthier, Vedder, refuses to give his house up, and together with his cousin Anijs – a pharmacist facing legal problems for illegal medical practices – plan a scheme from which they will all benefit, including a colony of poor peat cutters who are promised a better future in the US. Passion, pride and stubbornness bring tragic consequences to the plan.
