TULIPANI is a comedy drama centred around the strong-minded Dutch farmer Gauke, who, after losing his farm during the floods of 1953, is determined to never have wet socks again. With the aim to start a new life, Gauke cycles to a small village in Puglia, Italy.

In Puglia he finds his prospective tulip farm. Gauke's fairylike trek and miraculous tulip trade, combined with his passionate love life and turbulent scuffles with the dubious local business practices, raise him to legendary local hero status - only to then suddenly disappear. Thirty years later, the young Canadian woman Anna embarks on her own personal journey of discovery to uncover the truth of her past. She finds love along the way, while skirting a possible criminal record with the local police inspector.
