Witold has just failed his law exams, and Fuchs has recently quit his job at a Parisian fashion label. Both are going to spend a few days in the countryside, and choose to stay at a so-called family inn. They are welcomed by a sparrow, hanged in the forest by a string. Then, an equally hanged piece of wood, and a series of strange signs on the ceiling, in the garden and in the woods. In the guesthouse, there is a servant - who has a strange, twisted mouth - and a young house mistress whom Witold falls obsessively in love with. She's already married to a decent young man, but is she decent herself? The third hanging ? a cat ? is the work of Witold. Why? Could the next one be human?
