Olga Hepnarova–lesbian, loner, mass murderer–was the last woman executed in the former Czechoslovakia. In 1973, at the age of 22, Hepnarová used a truck to run down eight people on a Prague sidewalk. It was a crime of sudden and clinical ferocity whose fallout and subsequent trial shocked a nation. But who was Olga Hepnarová? What caused her to cross such a dangerous precipice? How did she become, in her own words, “a wreck, ruined by people”? “Teases out the psychological roots of a stunning crime. . . intelligently dodges sensationalism throughout.”–Variety. Ages 18+
