Teardrop of Evil (1993)

Original title: Saatana pisar

Feature film | Thriller | Supernatural Duration 94:00

In 1939, once again Preimann, a Baltic German baron, and Leppikson, a native Estonian, confront each other in Estonia. In this game evil forces arise - Soviet counterintelligence, the diplomacy of the Fascist Germany, involuntary dreams and black magic, satanists and traitors. The evil forces are opposed by the courage and love between Polish writer Joanna and Estonian detective Gunnar. Will they succeed in preventing a magic ritual where the Satan itself is being invited? Will this be enough in order to save Europe from the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact?
