Burned out of their own villages, the Red Thieves and the Black Thieves are skillful robbers, bitter rivals -- and so are their children. After a costly fight, the children run away to the ancient woods, where they encounter the Wicked Woods Witch; the Light Brigade; the Queen of the Gnomes; the Dark Innkeeper, his Wife and Daughter. In Eastern European style, the tale unspools through music, song, dance, rhythm and oral tradition.
