A girl dies on a winter night, brutally mauled, frost bitten. Jack is in prison for this murder. He channels his dark character into poems that he writes. After his release from custody after 15 years he becomes a star in Viennas high society as a poet and a lover. But can a person change fundamentally? Can he defeat, or at least silence the devil inside of him? Or does a murderer remain a murderer forever?
