Long ago and far, far away in Serbia, a Captain of the Police was posted to a village. He noted the ruins of a castle atop a hill.  He makes enquiries and when exploring the ruins he finds a statue amidst the rubbish, and hears terrible stories about it.

He finds several curious documents in the archives of relating to the old castle and the statue which tell of a fortune to be found. What the documents don’t tell is what happens to fortune seekers if they start the process but fail in their quest.

Believing he won’t fail, he commences his search, but that’s when things begin to happen……. What happened to the Captain you ask? Well many things happened, some silly and some serious.
