Filled with sharp wit and boasting a first-rate cast, PLAN C is a dark comedy thriller that reveals human weakness through a smart and compelling plot.
Ronald Plasmeyer (Ruben Van Der Meer) is a small-time Amsterdam detective, struggling with financial problems because of his gambling habit. When Chinese crime boss Hao threatens Ronald’s ex-wife and son to get his money back, Ronald comes up with a plan that will solve all his problems.
Ronald enlists two petty criminals (Ton Kas & René Van ‘t Hof) to rob an illegal poker tournament he’s taking part in, providing him with a perfect alibi. Quick, simple and non-violent; the plan is foolproof… until people start getting killed.

Like no other, Max recognizes the humor and tragedy in everyday life.Max graduated in 2006 from the Film Academy in Amsterdam with the praised graduation film The Deception, written and directed by himself. Just like Plan C, The Deception is a tragicomedy starring Ruben van der Meer. As a result of their fruitfull collaboration on The Deception, Max wrote Plan C with Ruben in mind as lead character. This character, Ronald Plasmeyer, is tailor made for Ruben and takes full advantage of Ruben’s talents as an actor.In the past couple of years Max has further developed his talent directing several video clips and television commercials among which for the BBC, Toyota, Dixons and the Dutch Film Festival.
