Raised in a strict family environment in Prague, Olga Hepnarová, a timid by nature and troubled child with no friends, was frequently bullied by her classmates. As a result, an utterly alienated Olga will gradually nurture a raging hatred towards an indifferent and faceless society--unbeknownst to her that pretty soon--she will be destroyed by the same element, she's been trying to avoid: its people. In the end, as Olga feels more and more rejected by everyone, a silent but meticulously-prepared plot against society will become her only means of retribution against an odious circle, an apathetic family, and the rest of the world.
