On 5 December 1895, the evening of the Dutch feast of Santa Claus, three masked men raid Gatze Haitsma's remote homestead. That afternoon, after a passionate bout of love making with the housekeeper, Wybren Hogerhuis leaves the Haitsma farmhouse with the announcement that he wants to celebrate Santa Claus with his family. He will not be returning to the farm to defend it against possible raiders. Wybren Hogerhuis and his two brothers, all members of the Socialist Movement, are then suspected of carrying out the raid . . .
