The best robber band in the woodland (just like Robin Hood)


One dark and stormy night, Wenzel comes to an astonishing decision. He runs away from the monastery and becomes a real outlaw. Along with his friends Ulle, Anne, Jakob, Elsbeth, and Fritsche, he sets up a band of robbers. Wild and free, just like Robin Hood – and acting with the same sense of justice. They rob from the rich and give to the poor. This is what their archenemy, Count Fuchs von Kaltental, wants to stop at all costs. And thus, a dangerous cat-and-mouse game begins…
