12-year-old Kwinten loves to play outside. Since his best friend Obi moved to another city, he is often alone. Kwinten now finds comfort with his dog Jagmur, donkey Carmen and the neighbour’s pig Knorre. For Kwinten, his dad is his big hero. He is commander of the F931 Louise-Marie, a navy ship of the Belgian Ministry of Defense. His job requires him to be regularly at sea for long periods of time. Kwinten is used to missing his father, but every time he is away on a mission, Kwinten needs to see how to fill the days and cope with ‘missing’.
