The Blacksmith and The Devil
A Starost leads a life of debauchery and pillage. He sets his own laws in the district which he rules. He only feels respect for Wojtek from the Blacksmiths family, who helps everybody, gives them advice, and, most importantly, keeps all the local devils and gremlins prisoner in a willow tree. The Starost does his best to avoid crossing his path with the Blacksmith. But as he wants to get more gold he enters into a pack with the devil Boruta. However, he fails to keep his end of the bargain and the devil seeks the Blacksmith?s help. Together they set a trap. The Starost is put to jail. The Blacksmith releases all the devils, of course, on the condition that they never return to the area.
