A girl dies on a winter night, brutally battered and frozen. Jack Unterweger is convicted of her murder. When he is let out of prison fifteen years later, the “prison poet” advances to become a heartthrob and fixed star in Viennese society. Can a person fundamentally change? Or does a murderer always remain a murderer? Production notes
