Camera Cagliostro suomeksi!
As her birthday approaches, Faruza, the daughter of a poor fisherman decides to rebel. In secret, she befriends the island's hated and lonely blacksmith, who has longed for a change in his life. Together the rebels escape to the joyous court of the pearl fishers on the neighbouring island. But Faruza's fate is to return to her home island where the women await her. But as it happens, the island's queen has also had her fill of the mask. Read more about Faruza and see the Making of Faruza photogallery!
