    • Belgians, such as top chef Sergio Herman, look forward to it with bated breath - the start of the mussel season. In this film light is shed on the lifecycle of the Zeeland mussel in an intimate manner. The mussel that loves, the one that holds on with all its might, and the mussel that is cast off by storm. And on its way, we (and the mussel) encounter the passionate enthusiasts who fall in love, struggle and overcome adversity.
