When authority collapses in a remote penal colony for dwarves the inmates run riot.

Herzog’s second feature is often read as a commentary on the revolutionary impulses of the late-60s; hugely controversial in its own time, it was immediately banned in Germany, and the director forced to distribute it himself.
