SYNOPSIS

Janina Duszejko is a retired engineer, astrology lover, and vegetarian who once built bridges in the Middle East.  Now, she lives alone in the Sudeten Mountains.  One winter night, she finds the body of her neighbor, a poacher.  The circumstances of the man’s death are unusually mysterious as the only footprints found around his house are the prints of deer hooves.  Seeing the ineffectiveness of the police investigation, she starts her own, unconventional investigation.

The film is an adaptation of the book by Olga Tokarczuk, “Lead Your Plow through the Bones of the Dead”.
