The world’s first true reverse narrative film is the story of three gambler thieves, one of whom is blind. Together they manage to crack a safe. The safe has diamonds worth a million, but then greed takes over as they decide to play the Russian roulette. The guy who survives would keep the diamonds. The film moves in reverse towards the beginning as the opening of the film evolves as the climax.
