Story

By the 17th century, noblemen in Poland were left with little more than memories of their ancestral riches. “Revenge” (Zemsta) is the hilarious tale of two feuding gentry who live as neighbors in a run-down castle divided by a crumbling stone wall. Nothing is sacred as they strive to outwit one another and gain control of their humble realm.
