Plot Summary

In this period action series, Wilhelm ('William', several names are anglicized) Tell isn't just a father whose masterly archery saves his boy (Matthew)'s life but more of a Swiss Robin Hood in medieval times, before the Alpine country became the present stand-alone republican Helvetic Confederation, who stands up time and again against grim feudal oppression, as administered by Governor Hermann Gessler and other noble lords, who exploit and abuse the simple mountain villagers practically as serfs.
