The 1960s Provincial of Hungary were shaken by a series of brutal murders that shocked the small town of Martfü. A psychotic killer lurks over helpless citizens and continues killing young girls while an innocent man is being convicted of crimes he would never have committed. A decisive detective arrives on the scene and soon becomes a communist case while the prosecutor is pressured to press for the 'perpetrator'. Caused in the congested social, political and psychological world of socialist Hungary, it is soon tired of intriguing and extremely shaky network of conspiracies.
