Brief synopsis

·Tropical Amsterdam· is a story about a community left behind by colonialism in Sri Lanka.
It's a dazzling community stuck between staying or leaving, illusion and reality, dancing tango under slow-circling fans, dining on Dutch china with blue windmills next to coconut palms, crazy for spices and tea. A Dutch tribe in Sri Lanka at the verge of extinction struggling to preserve their childhood memories.
