The Angelmakers is an observational portrait of a small, sleepy village in a rural Hungary. We meet its inhabitants, who share with us their daily life as well as their memories of the village's tainted past. Gradually, we discover the extent of the 'arsenic murders' that were discovered in 1929, when a large group of women from the village were arrested for poisoning their husbands with arsenic. Rather than presenting the historic facts, the film shows us how the villagers remember the events and how they reflect on them. We meet 93-years old Rosika, who shows us her pantry where one of the murderers hung herself, and a Danceclub Surprise - a group of ladies who had to fight for the right to dance, and who tell us about their domestic struggles. The villagers' stories give us a better insight into the circumstances surrounding the murders, as well as an insight into the ongoing male-female saga.
