“This oddly structured whodunit from Poland is a reverie wrapped around a murder mystery.” - The New York Times

Winner Silver Berlin Bear - 67th Berlin International Film Festival 

Nominated Golden Berlin Bear - 67th Berlin International Film Festival

Retired civil engineer Duszejko lives a secluded life in a mountain village close to the border between Poland and the Czech Republic. She is charismatic and eccentric, a passionate astrologer, and a strict vegetarian. One day her beloved dogs disappear. On a snowy winter’s night shortly afterwards she discovers the dead body of her neighbor and, next to it, deer tracks. More men die in a similarly mysterious way. All of them were pillars of the village community, and all were passionate hunters. Were these men killed by wild animals? Or has someone been provoked to pursue a bloody vendetta? At some point, Duszejko herself comes under suspicion...
