Synopsis: What if Robin Hood was from Dublin? The film is is about the meeting between an inner-city horse owner from Dublin (Robin Hood) and a traveling street musician (The Musical Slave). Worlds collide as their lives and destinies intertwine. The story involves horses, pigeons, a prison break, windmills, free electricity and more – and is a modern day, Bonnie & Clyde style version of the old myth of Robin Hood.
The film is a hybrid between a short film and a musical, as both narration and dialogue are conveyed through a song, performed by the traveling street musician.
