Oosteroever, East Shore, is an Ostend neighbourhood where the fishermen live: they weave nets, play cards, kill time. This is where the protagonist, Maxim Verleesne, hangs around, when he isn’t at sea to work. Now this suburb is about to be demolished: high, white residential blocks are rising up instead. The fishermen go on with their lives, with irony and disillusionment.
