About the film: The legend tale of William Tell follows an archer who is forced to shoot an apple on the top of his son's head after not wanting to bow in front of the king's statue. When the monarch inquires why Tell had two arrows in his quiver, the archer replied the other arrow was for the king in case he missed the apple. The ensuing events led to an uprising, eventually causing the formation of state of Switzerland.
