The newly formed team of detectives, Drago and Kristian, have been assigned to an unusual murder, with the appearance of a ritual killing. It turns out that this is not an isolated case, and that such crimes have been going on for years. As the killings continue to take place, it turns out that the detectives are dealing with a mass murderer who, in the name of a mysterious pagan cult hidden deep within the Catholic Church, hunts young infertile women, and offers them up as sacrifice to an ancient fertility god.
Through the combination of a crime investigation and mysterious thriller, with elements of foreboding horror and a dark drama, I would like to take the viewer on a journey through various historical periods, folk customs and believes all defined by the search of dominance over the mystical.
