An intimate thriller about Enric Duran, the Robin Hood of the 21st century. During the 2008 crisis, the Catalan activist stole half a million from the banks, donated it to social projects and announced it to the media to report the malpractices of the banking system. He was sentenced to prison, but managed to escape and vanish. Anna Giralt films Duran's mother, who hasn't seen her son for years, and through her she manages to contact the activist via encrypted chat. With wonderful animation sequences, Giralt portrays a fascinating character and poses uncomfortable questions for the viewers: Where are the limits between legality and legitimacy? What is the cost of being true to one's ideals?

As her feature- debut, “Robin Bank” mixes documentary techniques with personal introspection, animated excerpts and suspense, an interesting combination taking into account it’s a work with a strong social issue focus.
