‘Dirty Lines’ Plot
The story opens in 1987 in Amsterdam, during a period of significant change in Dutch society. Marly Salomon, a psychology student, takes on a part-time employment with Teledutch, a company founded by two brothers, Frank and Ramon Stigter, who founded Europe's first erotic telephone lines. Frank and Ramon become millionaires overnight, and Marly is caught up in the chaos.
The latter years of the Cold War instilled hope in a new generation and inspired them to live life to the fullest. With a radically new type of music: house, and a new love drug: XTC, Amsterdam became the epicenter of that cultural upheaval. Erotic phone lines provide a new means to have anonymous sex, altering not only the morality of its users, but also the morality of those who create it.
