'Checkpoint' is an epic story set in Terneuzen, a small Dutch town near the border of Belgium where, in the early nineties café owner Meddie gets the proposal from the authorities to open up a first legal 'coffeeshop' (note: selling soft drugs, not coffee) in order to re-establish order in the town's drug-infested streets. But over the years Meddie becomes so succcessful that the authorities start suspecting him of being a drug lord.
