Death of a Pedophile

Smrt pedofila

A psychological crime story set in contemporary days.One night a murder attempt is made in a prison for men. The victim is a young teacher, sentenced for the death of his pupil. During the course of the story we find out how this tragic occurrence had come about, and what had brought the teacher into this company, branded as a child murderer – surely the worst of human misdeeds. Simultaneously we follow interrogations at the prison, which are to reveal whether the unfinished act of murder had been just one more “lesson” dealt out by his prison mates, or if someone else stood behind it.
