WorldLittle Forest Robber lives hidden and very happily in his small forest, until one day he is caught and brought into the city. Here he is put into the zoo in which the public can watch forest dwellers who usually hide.
The forest robber adapts to his new living conditions – he makes a contract with his chief robber and is devoted to him from now on. With his bold performances he becomes the biggest attraction of the zoo. The tills are ringing.
By chance he witnesses how his chief robber is humiliated – and doesn’t even defend himself. That opens the Little Forest Robber’s eyes: he has committed himself to a coward. Now it is time for him to return home.
