De dood van Apotheker Dekkinga
Romantic crime film about a chemist who takes on a new identity.
During a row with his housekeeper, village chemist Dekkinga throws an object at her head and mistakenly thinks he has killed her. He flees and when he hitches a ride on a truck, the driver hits and kills a man. The dead man, a certain Van Dieren, bears an uncanny resemblance to Dekkinga who takes on his identity.
He goes to his own funeral as Van Dieren and finds work as a journalist. He meets two girls, one he falls in love with and one who wants to marry him. The former chemist refuses to marry the girl and his cover is about to be blown. Then he discovers the housekeeper didn’t die after all. He is a free man and marries the girl he loves.
