De man met de hond

It never occurred to Kees that he is an absolute nobody until he has to go to work for the first time in his life. His new colleagues think he’s not even worth looking at. This changes when Kees shows them a photograph of a good-looking girl and calls her his fiancée. To keep up the appearance of a man who knows what life is about, Kees has to break into more and more houses, stealing the family’s pictures…
