In the Belgian film Everybody's Famous from 2000, Josse De Pauw plays Jean Vereecken, a factory worker with a love for music, specifically popstar Debbie, played by The Voice finalist Eva van der Gucht. Jean's wife, Marva, played by Thekla Reuten, owns a small snack stand and together, they live with Jean's daughter, Marva's son and Marva's father who suffers from a stroke.

After Jean loses his job at the factory, he decides to take matters into his own hands in order to help his daughter's singing career take off. He kidnaps Debbie, his daughter's favorite popstar, with the help of his friend, Willy, played by Werner De Smedt.
