This two minute short is based around thieves of moonshine, moonshine was on high demand and many people didn't have the experience or ability to produce the product. For some people mainly gangs, didn't want to buy moonshine and couldn't produce it so they choose to steal it from moonshine suppliers in big batches. The moonshine thieves in this particular story are call the smith shiners, they go farm to farm and steal moonshine but claim it as their own. Normally they steal the moonshine with no hassle and in fact people are scare of they so more then often let them steal their produce, but on this particular night they stole from the wrong land. The Maharty brothers are one of the top moonshine producers and thats exactly who the smith shiners steal from, unlike most producers the Maharty brothers aren’t scared of no thieves, in fact the thieves should be the scared ones.
