To steal a thief

(Att stjäla en tjuv)

Robert Gustavsson is a rather unsuccessful thief in Stockholm who has a problem with the opposite sex. An old man lures him into a strange house by telling him that the neighbours are wealthy and gone off on a trip. He fairly quickly discovers however that this is hardly true and that the house is keeping several secrets to itself. Robert also falls in love with the beautiful estate agent, Susanna (Tova Magnusson-Norling).

Castro was executive co-producer with Lennart Dunér of the film which is known first and foremost as being Robert Gustavsson’s first feature film.
