A small town in Poland. Leon Okrasa, 40, works in the hospital crematory. In the past, he witnessed – perhaps committed – the brutal rape of Anna, now 30 and working as a nurse at the same hospital. They live near one another, she in a neighboring hostel for workers, he in a run-down cottage close by. Leon spies on Anna. But he wants more. His obsession grows. He starts to steal into her room, night after night, just to watch her asleep in the moonlight. Anna has started to notice strange things happening around her, but believes she’s imagining them. Then Leon is arrested sneaking into Anna’s room through the window. A new trial begins, during which he proves his deep feelings for Anna. Perhaps it’s true love after all.
