Based on the best-selling novel "Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead" by Olga Tokarczuk, one of the most famous figures in contemorary Polish literature.

Janina, an eccentric retired construction engineer, an astrologist and a vegetarian lives in a small mountain village on the Czech-Polish border. One day her beloved dogs disappear. They cannot be found anywhere. A few months later on a snowy night Janina's introvert neighbour stumbles upon the dead body of a poacher living nearby. He died a mysterious death. The only traces are those of roe deer hooves around the house… As time goes, more grisly killings are discovered. The victims belonged to the local elite and were passionate hunters. Janina tries to convince the local police force that they were murdered by wild animals. As another body is found after the costume ball, Janina becomes the main suspect. She was the last to see the victim. When the local parish house burns down and the priest and chaplain of the local hunting association dies in flames, the police are almost certain who did it…
