Duts, a slightly odd man in a strange world… 

Duts is a comedy series about Walter Duts, an oddball who lives by himself in the parental home even after his mother passed away. He leads a quiet, tranquil life and wouldn’t harm a soul. He lives in peace with himself. But that peace is constantly under threat by the difficult encounters with the world outside his house… 

Walter is not the only who is content with living in his world in his small universe. Walter gets on well with his neighbour Annie and the seventeen year old schoolgirl, Mieke. Conny, Annie’s daughter, secretly harbours some fond feelings for Walter, but her husband Danny –a police officer- dislikes ’oddball Walter’… 

These are the main characters in the weird but wonderful world of Duts. An uncomplicated micro universe on which modern society –with all its rules and structures- doesn’t seem to be able to get a grip on…
