To be able to cope with the pressure of fame, Dutch musician Jelte Tuinstra (23) creates a daring alter ego but finds himself even more isolated and insecure.

Dutch musician Jelte Tuinstra (23) is widely seen as the biggest rock star promise Netherland have seen in decades. He dreams of living a life of rock 'n' roll and more so: fame. There is only one problem: Tuinstra himself is way too shy to hit the spotlight. Therefore he creates a daring alter ego he calls Jett Rebel. Shortly after that Tuinstra gets confronted with the downside of his decision: while his alter ego Jett Rebel is gaining fame very fast, Tuinstra himself is getting isolated and more and more insecure.
