In a shoe factory, the atmosphere is heavy. There is a serial killer around, killing only the woman. The police investigate but proof is scarce. Years before, a man has been charged with the murders, but he has always denied them. The killings continue. The killer is yet to be discovered and the investigators are nervous. This feature had many international awards, being in the selection of prestigious countries such as France, Italy, Poland, Brazil, England or Brussels.
