In this gripping thriller a high-flying Warsaw prosecutor is brought in to investigate a young woman’s strange murder in a small provincial town. Soon the prosecutor uncovers a toxic cocktail of fanatical nationalism and racism bubbling away underneath the surface of this close-knit community. A pacy and engrossing detective story, which is also a fascinating exploration of the contemporary Polish relationship with Jews, dead and alive, and the worrying persistence of antisemitic myths in the 21st century.

Nominated, Critics Award – Hamburg Film Festival
