A dead girl is found on a housing estate. It should have been a routine case for rookie Tomáš Volf and his inexperienced partner. However, the murderer, nicknamed the Noonday Witch after the slavic mythical character, continues to haunt the apartment blocks, only striking in broad daylight. Detective Volf knows he has to do everything in his powers to succeed in his new role: deal with his stubborn partner as well as his superiors, survive the July heat and above all catch the murderer before another dead body hits the hot pavement.
