Boneca shares the journey of two people who belong to the opposite side of a dime. It explores the conscience of humans steeped in guilt and the struggle for liberation. This is the story of a man who grows up with unconditional love and of a man who is reborn by getting to know him.
Tragedies change the way Luuk and Jona lead their lives. Luuk grows up with unconditional love, whereas Jona has to pay for it his whole life.
On a perfectly ordinary afternoon, an embarrassing accident happens, and everything that they once held true is turned upside down. Luuk calls it fate, Jona calls it a miracle. But however they see it, the nudge in their ordinary lives subjects them to a linguistics expedition deep in the Amazon jungle for three months. There, they learn more than just a new language. They learn that life turns on a dime, and no power but God can change a misanthrope into a sentimentalist, or a doll into a human being.
Along their journey, Luuk sees that love is not as pleasing as he thought, and Jona sees that love is not as hideous as he knew it.
