Gordon Zsigmond (Krisztián Kolovratnik), a rugged crime reporter, encounters a mysterious, beautiful woman at a restaurant in Budapest circa 1936. The next day, she is found brutally murdered with only a Jewish prayer book in her purse. Dismissed as just another prostitute, her death is swept under the rug by press and police alike, but Gordon believes there’s more to the case. With the help of Eckhardt (Réka Tenki), a feisty photographer and former lover, Gordon seeks answers amidst Budapest’s seediest brothels and crime syndicates in the hope of solving the woman’s murder.

From the best-selling novel by Vilmos Kondor, this stylish and suspenseful film noir foreshadows the steady rise of anti-Semitism in pre-Nazi Hungary.
