A fatal knife attack occurred in March, 2005, when Lucijan Magas (33) was murdered by his wife Ana Magas (27). Ana now regrets her act. How does she cope with her life and the consequences of what she has done? Will she ever be able to see her child again, and be a mother? This film examines an ordinary person who becomes a monster overnight. How does she get through the day, from morning to evening? How does she deal with the stigma of being a killer? ‘Marked’ as she is, how can she return from prison and integrate back into society?
