Everyone who falls in love with Zoritsa (Ljuma Penov) dies in strange way. Outraged villagers in her highly superstitious Serbian village have already dubbed her the “kiss of death”—but there might be an exception. When a new police officer (Branislav Trifunovic), who doesn’t believe in “mumbo jumbo,” assumes the case of the missing men, he becomes skeptical of Zoritsa’s supposed evil powers. In his quest to solve the case of the missing men, he’s led to question whether Zoritsa is a serial killer, or just a cursed woman in search for love.

Winner of multiple awards including the Global Vision award at San Jose’s Cinequest Film Festival 2013, this dark fairytale comedy about “cursed” love answers the question of whether or not love truly does conquer all things.
