What Robin Hood is for the English, Jüri Rumm is for the Estonian. A mistreated servant of a nobleman stands up against his master and the whole class system. This culturally valueble title is being restored on spring 2023, and it will be presented by the Director of Film Archive of the National Archives of Estonia, Eva Näripea.
