Against the background of the emergence of mining in the years around the First World War plays this humorous story about the naive chaplain Erik Odekerke. Always busy with his' guardian angel ', the voice of Kees Brusse, and often collides with the conservative pastor Bonhomme. By his awkwardness he knows the people are often opposite. Fortunately, there also is pastor Lumens, a cozy friend for our chaplain. Many men fall for Miete van der Schoor, including Erik Odekerke. Her attraction also causes many conflicts in the community.
