“My verdict is: I, Olga Hepnarová, the victim of your bestiality, sentence you to death penalty." Those were the famous words of the 22-year-old mass murderer Olga Hepnarová, who in 1973 drove a truck into a group of innocent people in Prague.
Olga Hepnarová was a young, lonely lesbian outsider from a coldhearted 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 we delve into Olga's psyche and witness the worsening of her loneliness and alienation as we reconstruct the events that led up to her disastrous actions. Although the story is set in the 1970s, young people worldwide today still face problems of not belonging, being different, and being bullied because of race, gender or sexual orientation.
