Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Modern German history is rife with warring gangs of political extremists. In this East German film, Wolz is an anarchist living at the end of the First World War. In the chaos of the times, he organizes a gang to rob from the wealthy in order to feed the poor, who are starving. Arrested and imprisoned, he runs the group's operations from his cell. In prison, he enters into a dialog with a committed communist and discovers a different vision of the coming revolution.
