At the end of the WWI, the defeated Austro-Hungarian Empire loses control of the city port of Fiume.
While the victorious Allies divide the spoils of war at Versailles, they are oblivious to the fact that Fiume, long coveted by the Italians, has been dramatically captured by pirates!
A self-styled Pirate King, Gabriele d'Annunzio, storms the city with 3000 loyal soldiers and declares Fiume a free Republic with himself as commander.
David B.'s dark satire and effortless rendering of this amazing story constantly challenges expectations.
