1. Plot

During the 16th century, horse dealer Michael Kohlhaas is taking his horses to market. As he passes through a local barons lands, the baron seizes two of his horses, even though the right to extract tolls has been abolished in the country. When Kohlhaas discovers that his loyal servant was attacked by the barons guard dogs, and that his horses have been injured and abused, he attempts to sue for monetary compensation, but his lawsuit is dismissed because the baron has a kinsman at court. Later, Kohlhaass wife dies from injuries suffered at the hands of the barons men.
