This film is based on actual events. It is a story about a young woman, who drove a lorry into a group of people standing at a tram stop, in Holešovice (a suburb in Prague), on 10th July 1973. When in court, she admitted that her intention was to kill as many people as possible. Shortly before the incident, Olga had sent a letter to local newspapers, in which she explained the reasons behind her action: “I am a loner. I am a human being destroyed by other human beings. I face a simple choice: either to kill myself, or kill others. I choose revenge. It is way too simple to leave this world by committing a suicide that nobody would notice. (...) My verdict: Olga Hepnarová will fall prey to her own bestiality, sentenced to death”. And it was indeed so ― Olga was the last woman in former Czechoslovakia to have been executed.
