Former documentarist Mingozzi brought his skill for discerning facts to this dramatized version of the internal conflict on the rugged terrain of Sardinia. The peasants there have an ancient custom of kidnaping and exchanging the victim for land. In this case the victim is a student, son

of wealthy merchants. His kidnaping creates a stir among the police, and his family and friend Nero devise a plan to expose the criminal who has been taking advantage of the peasant bandits. A hand-held camera adds a realistic atmosphere, and the legend and folklore of the island are integrated

into the story very well.
