Based on a true story that created a media frenzy in Poland and abroad, turning into one of the world’s most famous trials, written up by newspapers around theworld, including The Guardian, The New Yorker, Time, and Daily Mail. The person of interest was Krystian Bala, author of a book describing the perfect crime he had allegedly committed. The story was built like a masterful psychological thriller. From the beginning, we find ourselves asking the question of whether or not the author of the book is a killer, or a victim of his own ambition and an unfortunate coincidence.
