Luuk is a truckdriver who seems to be a goodhearted father for his daughter Isabel. After Luuk divorced his wife Karen, Isabel lives with
her mother. Whenever Luuk has the chance he takes Isabel to the
sea or for a ride in his Truck which only carries sand. On one of those occasions Luuk discovers the horrific reason why Isabel is so quiet that day. From that moment on Luuk has to cope with a new and unexpected situation. Luuk kidnaps his daughter to protect her but he slowly loses control. Zand is a compelling and romantic story about Luuk and his daughter Isabel who both like the feel of sand.
