Two brothers linger in the little village where they have just buried their mother. In an old trailer, Vincent (20) goes along with his brother Sjoerd (26) on a path of drug abuse and nihilistic behavior. How strong can the love between two brothers, for their deceased mother, an old dog and for life itself be?

Ketamine is realized within One Night Stand IX, an initiative by broadcasters VARA, VPRO and NTR and Mediafund, Filmfund and CoBO.
