    • Synopsis
    • The highway in the Netherlands has a total length of almost 2500 kilometres. There is almost no other country with such an enormous highway density.

      In this documentary the monumentality, but also the apparent everydayness of our highway is shown. The highway is actually a poorly known arena for a wide range of activities. What does this monumental and almost perfect network say about us?
