The thriller Clean Hands is based on a Dutch crime novel by René Appel. For a long time Sylvia didn’t want to see her the flourishing drug business of her husband Eddie. When the police starts to show up more and more at their house, she realises how deeply involved he actually is. To protect her two children, Sylvia tries to run away from the criminal world. However, this is far from easy, especially because Eddie will do everything to keep the "family" together.
