Kalvary Istvan, a retired colonel in the Royal Hungarian cavalry, takes up a post as chief of police of the Bistritz district in Transylvania in 1896. His hopes of a peaceful retirement are dashed when he learns of his predecessor's disappearance, along with his pretty young wife. A manhunt for a serial killer is also underway in the district, led by a brilliant young investigator named Gabor Kasza.
