Based on the true story of a business man who was murdered in 2000 in Wrocław. His killer, Krystian Bala (Mateusz Kościukiewicz) managed to evade conviction for three years, and might have been able to continue to do so, if he hadn’t decided to write a detailed account about the crime and publish it as a work of fiction. The novel sold well, and yet at the same time led to the world-famous trial, where Bala was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison. Amok was nominated for a Golden Lion at the Polish Film Festival in 2017.
