SYNOPSIS: A private detective in search of his family comes to town to solve a mysterious case: its citizens are disappearing one after another and nobody knows why. In a timeless place, he will face mad doctors and run in crazy chases as he enters the town recesses, seeking for the truth. What is the dark secret hidden behind all those benevolent smiles and non-existing doors?
The noir character of the film is marked by its soundtrack and the dark atmosphere. Music becomes the fundamental element of a finely crafted composition and it drags the audience in a crescendo to an increasingly surreal world. Sledztwo is a dark tale which creates an almost grotesque portrait of our modern society and its atrocities. It tears down the illusion of an ordinary reality and reshape its features. It explores the darkest places of our mind and shatters all our certainties.
