While researching a resilient moth, Karolina spends her evening playing snooker and drinking whisky, and her nights plagued by erotic dreams. As political, spiritual, and sexual tensions in the small town rise, a murder will take place, lovers will meet in the cemetery, and friendships will fall apart--all building to an eruption of violence. Winner of the 1994 M-Net Prize.
