by Nicholas Priore

In March of 1978, Gantscho Ganev and Roman Wardas, two Polish refugees living in Switzerland, exhumed the mortal remains of a certain silent film star in order to hold them for ransom. This story is as true as it is unbelievable. And while the Who, What, When, Where and How are all matters of fact, the question of Why is…up for question. In an unlikely yet romantic blend of comedic farce and dramatic realism, both satirical and lyrical, this revisionist account explores why these two desperate men would commit such an absurd crime on that strange and surreal night.
