Poland in the 1990s: in a deeply religious country experiencing high unemployment, creative solutions are needed if one wants to get ahead. And so a nameless young man has developed a very lucrative business model: disguised as the devil, he roams the countryside, which the film captures in atmospheric, grainy images. This deceitful Beelzebub “forgives” devout pensioners their sins one after another for a small fee, until one day a widow refuses to go along with his scheme.
