    • Synopsis
    • Lisa is sent, by her mother, to live with the erotically-inclined bishop. He is to coach her into becoming a lady, in preparation for her arranged marriage to a hideous, but wealthy, fool.
      Lisa escapes from his lusty clutches. Finding herself deep in the forest she befriends some hookers. Together they form a sisterhood of bandits.
      A long long time ago beyond the edge of the forest, young tomboyish Emily lives with her mother Katharina and her older sister Magdalena in a run-down, delapadated manor house. The two sisters are very different and it’s clear that Katharina likes Magdalena a lot more than Emily. The family is heavily in debt: to rectify the situation Katharina has decided that she will arrange for Emily to marry the Bischop’s rich nephew Von Bock.
      Emily, who would like to decide for herself who she will marry, is secretely having an affair with Josef, the son of the Butler David. Emily is determined to fight against her mothers’ plans.
      To teach the girl a lesson, her mother sends her to the Bischop, to work as a maid and to learn some manners. Here Emily becomes good friends with the older maid Trizi. When the Bischop tries to get into Emily’s underpants, she struggles and manages to escape with the help of Trizi.
      Emily and Trizi find a hideout in a brothel deep in the forest. Soon the prostitutes working there for Madame Fleurie become Emily’s new best friends. One day however, the Biscop comes to visit the brothel and discover that Emily has been hiding here. A big shoot-out ensues whereby Madame Fleurie is killed, but the girls manage to escape. They hide in a cave in the woods and decide to form a group of bandits: Robber Girls.
      They ambush the travellers coming through the forest: their robberies are succesful. The poor they let go, the rich are stripped of their goods and their clothes, left behind naked and tied to trees.
      The Robber Girls enjoy their newfound wealth and luxury, the Bischop however, is still on their heels, searching for them, offering anyone that has any information a big reward (money and a Rolex). The Bischop takes Emily’s love, Josef, hostage and tortures him. Katharina uses Josef as bait, to blackmail Emily. Thus Emily yields to her mothers’ demands in order to ensure that Josef doesn’t get killed. Back at the Bischops castle, Emily gets ready for her arranged marriage to Von Bock.
      The rest of the Robber Girls decide that they will rescue Emily. Dressed as nuns coming to the wedding, they shuffle into the church. A big rescue mission ensures that the wedding is called off just before the vows are exchanged...
