It is based on a true story about a young woman who, on July 10, 1973, drove a truck into a group of people standing at a tram stop in Praha-Holešovice. During the trial, she confirmed that her intention was to kill as many people as possible. Just before the incident, Olga sent a letter to local newspapers, reading: "I'm a lone wolf. A human destroyed by humans. I have a choice: to kill myself or others. I choose revenge. It would be too easy to leave this world by a quiet suicide." Olga was the last woman in the former Czechoslovakia to be subjected to death penalty. The leading role was given to Michalina Olszańska, a Polish actress.
