The Sheriff Behind Bars

Serif za mrežami

Directed by Dimitrij Plichta
Czechoslovakia, 1965


Jakub lets himself be arrested and put in jail instead of the “sheriff” of their gang. He hopes the “sheriff” will appreciate his gesture. This belief gives him the strength to stand the unbearable conditions in the reform institution.
