On the streets of Moscow, a vicious serial killer stalks his female victims. Ksenia, an ambitious young editor of an online newspaper, seeks to entrap him and further her own career. But her preoccupation with the crimes reflects her unconscious fascination with the sexual savagery of the murders and her own dark desires. She becomes obsessed with the unknown and seemingly unknowable killer... and he with her.
