After losing his farm during the floods of 1953, a romantic Dutch farmer is tired of getting his socks wet. He cycles all the way to the sizzling hot south of Italy to start a new life and ends up on the outskirts of a small village in Puglia.
Due to his fairylike and miraculous tulip trade, his passionate love-life, and his turbulent scuffles with the dubious local business practices, he becomes a living legend – to then suddenly disappear. Thirty years later an Italian police inspector attempts to unravel the story but struggles to distinguish fact from fiction.
With the help of the young Canadian woman Anna, he discovers what truly happened.
