This documentary on Marten Toonder portrays his character, always compromising between reality and a fantasy world that is still topical. It shows how he managed to set up a cartoonstudio in war time (1940-1945) with Joop Geesink and how he managed to keep hundreds of employees out of German hands, with German money.

Besides that, it shows how Toonder created a fantasy world in which he raised questions about topics that are relevant to this day. In other words: a film about the two worlds of Toonder: the one of norms and values and laws, opposing the world of mystery and significance.
