In Zoutvloed nothing is what it seems. On the quay in the remote village in the north of the country, a group of children is wandering around. They are between ten and twelve years. They fish, swim, eat sweets and experience wonderful adventures. Adventures that nobody quite understands, full of superstition, unexplained events and mysteries. Perhaps there's more than we can see more than we can understand? And who is Tepper, thick, longhaired narrator who seems to know all?
Mike's father has organized a darts tournament, however he is in hospital. Mike's father is in a coma and probably won't wake up. Mike wants the darts tournament postponed until his father wakes up.
When his father dies he can't coop with it and runs away and when he sees Sjoerd, he starts fighting him. Somehow Mike falls and is unconscious. In his unconsciousness he has a vision of his dad.
