A tragic story of passion, justification and the root of evil is presented in this adaptation of the original prose novel.
Seeking a reward, Geralt brings the corpse of a dead creature to a small town, where he discovers that it may be useful to the local sorcerer, but the sorcerer is not who he says he is. Running for his life, he enlists Geralt’s help in slaying the monster that seeks to kill him: a young girl said to have been born under the Black Sun curse, a prophecy of innate evil. He declares that she is more of a monster than the being presented to him.
Geralt then meets the woman, who claims that the sorcerer is the real monster, committing heinous crimes at the behest of his superstitious beliefs. With blurred lines between wrong done and wrong done in return, Geralt is faced with a dilemma. The face of evil is constantly changing and the trial of it, whether by choice or by force, can only lead to tragedy.
