Description

Janina Duszejko, a retired civil engineer, part-time English teacher and animal rights defender, 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 two 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?

Veteran director Agnieszka Holland, a three-time Academy Award nominee, says “The protagonist leads us through a landscape in which the beauty of nature and human friendship are mixed with mud, corruption, cruelty, stupidity and blood.”
