Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This uneven but interesting drama is based on the real-life story of a Romanian Robin Hood who lived at the turn of the 20th century. He actually did steal from the rich and give to the poor until he was caught and put in jail. Knowing full well they could not keep him jailed because of his enormous popularity, the police allowed him to escape and then set the stage for ending his forays against the rich. First, men claiming to be a part of his band start stealing from the poor to discredit the man. Their real mission, however, is to kill him. The message seems clear, no one can mess with the monied classes.
