Olga Hepnarova was a young, lonely lesbian outsider from a cold-hearted family who couldn’t play the part society desired of her. Her paranoid self-examination and inability to connect with other people eventually drove her over the edge of humanity when she was only twenty-two years old. The film shows the human being behind the mass murderer without glorifying or downplaying the terrible crime she committed. Guided by her letters the makers delve into Olga’s psyche and witness the worsening of her loneliness and alienation as they reconstruct the events that led up to her disastrous actions.
