Belgium 1935. An honest pen-pusher is offered an unhoped-for job by an apparently respectful editor. Soon he discovers his ‘savior’ is a big time swindler. Status and money versus peace of mind... how much will he put up with before he makes his final choice? ‘Soft Soap’ is a sweet sour comedy, based upon the novels ‘Lijmen’ and ‘Het Been’ by Willem Elsschot.
