Van der Keuken sketches a portrait of Amsterdam and its inhabitants. The hero of the film is Khalid, a young moped courier who leads the viewer through the entire city while delivering his packages. Van der Keuken said: “In this film, in keeping with cinéma vérité, I wanted to let myself be carried along by the camera, to let myself be surprised by what would happen.”
