When the famous Rembrandt paintings of Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit are displayed, something miraculous happens. When Jackie walks by their portraits after closing time, the eyes of Oopjen (Sarah Bannier) follow her. Jackie thought she’d just imagined it, but it turns out to be real. All of a sudden Oopjen is standing in front of her, but Jackie doesn’t want anything to do with her. She thinks she is an actress dressed up as Oopjen.
