Master Stu' is a Surinamese folk singer living in the Netherlands. His wife Patrice acts as his songwriter and manager. Since the Corona measures, streets are empty and all of his gigs have been cancelled. Stu and Patrice come up with an alternative: free 'pavement parties' for the isolated elderly. Meanwhile, Stu's new music video needs to be recorded under social distancing: "One and a half meter, is the new normal".
