As the case of a brutally murdered architect is dismissed, it seems that the culprit will go unpunished. However, four years later, the police receive an anonymous tip-off. The source points out the similarities between the unsolved murder and the plot of the novel Amok. With the case reopened, the police inspector Jacek Skolski, troubled by his murky past, confronts the demoniacal author of the book, Krystian Bala. Directed by Katarzyna Adamik, Amok was inspired by true events, while Bala’s novel was used in drafting of the script. In 2007, the author of the book himself was convicted for 25 years of imprisonment based on circumstantial evidence. His trial was covered by world’s most prominent media outlets.
