Robber’s Rise must become a place, that’ll take care of the family. Household needs a lot of work and consistency – battle with nature, fate and his spiteful neighbor Pearu begins. When life deals the man more sufferings than longawaited successes, the man searches desperately for truth and justice – from court, tavern and the Bible, sacrificing his family, friends and eventually himself in the process. Dream of prosperous and nurturing Robber’s Rise descends deeper and deeper under the shadow of reality.
