At the end of the First World War, the defeated Austro-Hungarian Empire loses control of the city port of Fiume. While the victorious Allies divide the spoils of war at Versailles, they are oblivious to the fact that Fiume, long-coveted by the Italians, has been dramatically captured by pirates!
A self-styled Pirate King, Gabriele d’Annunzio storms the city with 3000 loyal soldiers and declares Fiume a free Republic with himself as commander. David B. effortlessly draws d’Annunzio along winding roads, constantly challenging expectations with his dark satire.
