You Are My Hero

You Are My Hero
Scene from “You Are My Hero” (photo © Tobias Bilgeri)

Time and time again the brave knight takes off into battle. Even though his sword actually smells like tomato juice upon each of his triumphal returns, his wife remains loyal to her hero. Not until he takes off for battle one day without his sword does she get suspicious and look further into the situation at hand.
