Drama based on the classical book for children by Kurt Held.

The romantic, breathtaking landscape of Mediterranean coast in the 1930s: after the death of his mother, twelve-year-old Branko
goes looking for his father, a travelling
fiddler, in a near-by coastal town, but his father is long gone. When Branko snatches a fish from the local market, he gets nabbed by fish merchant Karaman - only to be freed by 14-yearold Red Zora, the leader of a gang of outlaw orphan kids with a hideout in the ruins of a castle. Chased by the rich kids of the town’s well-to-do families, Karaman and the local police, Zora’s gang strikes back with ingenuity and camraderie. Zora begins to discover her feelings for Branko, while he has a crush on the beautiful, violin-playing Zlata - who turns out to be the daughter of the mayor Ivekovic. The gang on the run soon finds its future at stake in the greatest adventure of their lives.
