The Baron is contacted by an old client Olmira from the war torn country of Khakania. He has a rare statuette that he needs to sell to help finance the rebels cause in his country. The real problem is how to get the statuette out of Khakania. Leaving with Olmiras grandaughter is required to navigate the countryside but the secret police are quickly on their trail. The rebels are headed by a man named Miros who is by chance there at a checkpoint where The Baron is being held. The only escape it to reach the border however it seems the secret police are anticipating every step.

Personal Synopsis

An episode that shows the galant american hero taking on the facists of an unknown random country. The premise of this episode is about an attempt to raise money for the rebels cause to buy guns and ammunition and hopefully to overthrow the facists with violence. There is a subtle correlation with the meaning of the “Four Horsemen” and the symbolic fight that is taking place in Khakania. There is a brilliant performance by Jane Merrow as Olmiras granddaughter as well.
