AMSTERDAM VICE – 8 X 52’
Set in Amsterdam against the backdrop of the tumultuous 1980’s coronation riots, a young detective Judd Cox has just been promoted to one of the toughest police departments in the city. Along with his partner Montyn, they are investigating a murder case that leads to plans for an attack on the coronation day of Princess Beatrix. In a race against time they strive to thwart the attack, in the busy, ramshackle historical city centre of 80’s Amsterdam, where drug dealers, squatters and the wealthy middle class all strive to co-exist.
