Residents of the South Bohemian town of Paštiky wonder if a thief can have a conscience. A few days after granite skulls were stolen from the cemetery gate, someone returned them, placing them carefully back in front of the church wall. The mysterious return of the stolen sculptures leads locals to wonder about the perpetrator's motives. The film is a varied mosaic of testimonies and witness statements into which they project their own ideas.
