The Angelmakers is a portrait of the sleepy village of Nagyrev in rural Hungary. We meet its inhabitants, who share with us their daily life as well as their memories. We gradually come to understand the extent of the «arsenic murders» which took place in 1929, when a large group of women were held responsible for poisoning their husbands with the so-called «flypaper» method. Having been unable to talk about this period in history for many years, an intriguing web of stories unfolds through the characters memories which recapture old but ever-lasting tales of life, death and the struggle between the sexes.
