According to Haneke, the film is about “the origin of every type of terrorism, be it of political or religious nature.”

Plot: Strange events happen in a small village in the north of Germany during the years just before World War I, which seem to be ritual punishment. The abused and suppressed children of the villagers seem to be at the heart of this mystery.
