Synopsis

This poetic movie about the victory of love over hellish malevolence takes place in Prague during the distant past.

The young married woman, in spite of the fact that she’s attracted to the foreigner, decides to remain faithful to her husband Jonas. The cynical manipulation of lives and emotions perpetrated up to now turns tragically against the creator of Evil. The film´s producer is of Czech origin, as are some of the actors.
