But its’ a special lift: when he pushes the forbidden green button, it takes him, Laura, Jozias Tump and his wife to Manhattan. There he’s mistaken by a rich woman who looks like his mother for her long missing son Johhny. When a police helicopter comes to the lift cabin, the Dutchmen get back in. It takes them to a Latin American country. The new revolutionary leader realizes presidents live about one year, so he gives the job to Mr. Tump. The news coverage attracts Abel’s Dutch and New York families, in time for an even weirder finale.
