Beneath the mundane lurks a vicious heart. Life is perfunctory in a small rural Polish village, with the inhabitants co-existing in a social if not so friendly manner. When one of the residents disappears overnight, a sinister shadow is cast on a picturesque scene as the entire community engages in a gradual slide toward total disregard of their neighbour and a willingness to commit the worst of crimes against property and people.
