On 13 March, 1964, 28-year old Kitty Genovese was stabbed to death on the street in NYC. It was revealed later that 38 people in the neighbourhood in some way witnessed the crime that lasted 50 minutes. None of the witnesses called the police. The film explores the phenomenon of the so-called "bystander effect". Radim Spacek's film about indifference uses elements of both documentary and fiction film.
