About This Project

The three brothers ‘De Smet’ live next to each other in similar houses and drive identical cars. They evenly divide their household chores, and they’ve been champions at the cards club for years. When Nico meets the new neighbour, their well-oiled machine grinds to a halt and the other brothers are left to deal with the consequences. After losing the cards championship, the older brothers must find a solution.
