The early years of German poet/philosopher/historian/playwright Friedrich Schiller, from his birth to young adulthood, including his tenure at a brutal military academy, conflict with the local ruler, Karl Eugen, Duke of Württemberg, and his first significant theatrical success, “The Robbers.” Narrated in English over scenes of the places and locales where Schiller resided and worked. Dramatic reenactments are interspersed, including one long segment enacting a scene from “The Robbers” in German with no translation. Produced by Cologne-based German TV company, TransTel.
