At the end of 1945, Bert Röling takes his seat on the Tokyo Tribunal. 'The International Military Tribunal for the Far East' is the Japanese version of the German Nuremburg Trials, where war criminals were tried after the Second World War. Through political interference, conspiring colleagues and conflicting legal opinions, tensions rise amongst the group of eleven international judges. As the tribunal threatens to derail, Röling is filled with doubt: should he align himself with the majority, and give in to international pressure, or follow his conscience as an independent judge?

Tulipani tells the story of a romantic Dutch farmer named Gauke who after losing his farm during the floods of 1953 is determined to never ever have wet socks again. He cycles to the sizzling hot south of Italy to start a new life and ends up at 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.
