Rain or shine, storm or chill; all year long the world is queuing up to see the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Who are all these visitors? Where are they from? And why are they here? This film watches the queue through the course of the four seasons, in search of stories from all over the globe.

Interviews with people from the line – both before and after their visit to the Secret Annex show how repression, discrimination, and dehumanization transcend the boundaries of time. We also learn that everyone in his own way feels connected to this extraordinary place. Personal stories are interspersed with passages from Anne Frank’s diary, read in many different languages by girls about the same age as Anne at the time.

Meanwhile we get an impression of everyday life as it unfolds around those waiting in line the canal boats, the street musicians, the ticket seller, the homeless man – For all its poignancy ”In Line for Anne Frank” is a document that also inspires hope.

According to Protocol shows the responsible but also emotional work of the dispatchers of the emergency services 112. They are expected to adjust their way of assistance to the new protocol that took effect recently. For the optimization of health care the dispatchers have to follow a tight schedule of questionnaires. The one dispatcher is coping better to this commercial change in work than the other.

Director Anne-Marieke Graafmans shows us the dilemma employees in the care increasingly have to face: realize the best possible care for the clients versus the commercialization in health care.
