    Lammert doet geen vlieg kwaad. Hij woont met zijn sierduiven en zijn beste vriendin Frieda in het Groningse dorpje Kropsdam. Zijn rustige leven wordt ruw verstoord wanneer hij verdacht wordt van een deal met energiebedrijf GreenNow, om een windmolen op zijn land te laten plaatsen. Lammert is zich van geen kwaad bewust: hij wil helemaal niets met windmolens te maken hebben. Toch merkt hij dat het dorp hem anders begint te behandelen. Want in Kropsdam is iedereen gelukkig, behalve als je pech hebt.

    Lammert wouldn’t hurt a fly. He lives with his fancy pigeons and his best friend Frieda in the small Groningen village of Kropsdam. His tranquil life is disrupted when he is suspected of making a deal with the energy company GreenNow, in order to have a wind turbine built on his land. Lammert is oblivious to this: he doesn’t want anything to do with wind turbines. Yet he notices that the village starts treating him differently. Because everyone is happy in Kropsdam, unless you’re out of luck.
